Ridiculously Good Olive Oil Dip Recipe

This garlic and herb mixture is a flavor bomb. When topped with olive oil, it turns into a delicious dip for bread. Keep extra olive oil close by, you can always top up the plate with more.



Makes about 1/2 cup, Serves 4 to 6

YOU WILL NEED

  • 2 garlic cloves, or more depending on how garlicky you want it
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
  • Pinch sea salt, if you have it try truffle salt
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes, optional to make it spicy
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
  • Crusty bread, cubed


DIRECTIONS
Finely mince the garlic and capers. Add to a bowl along with the oregano, rosemary, thyme and cheese. Season with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Use the back of a spoon to smoosh the herbs into the garlic and capers.

Make one or two mounds of the garlic-herb mixture on a rimmed plate. Drizzle the olive oil on top. Serve with cubes of bread.

ADAM AND JOANNE'S TIPS

  • Make-ahead: Prepare the garlic-herb mixture a day or two in advance and store, covered tightly, in the refrigerator. The fresh herbs may loose some color. When ready to serve, add the mixture to a plate and top with olive oil.
  • Capers: We love the saltiness capers add to the dip, but if you do not have them in your kitchen, leave them out. The dip still tastes great without them.
  • Dried herbs vs. fresh: We do prefer fresh rosemary and thyme for this, but you can use dried rosemary and thyme instead of fresh. Crush the dried herbs a little in the palm of your hand before adding them into the mix. You will also want to use a little less — about 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Use high-quality olive oil — we really love Partanna olive oil in the red can. It tastes great and isn’t as expensive as some of the other high-quality olive oils.
  • Adding a small splash of balsamic vinegar is never a bad idea.
