I went to Oregon to visit my daughter and I got to taste a new treat. My daughter had a bottle of oil and vinegar. She poured it into a small plate and we had slices of crusty french bread that we dipped into the sauce and ate the bread. Boy, was this good. We almost polished off the bottle of oil/vinegar and the whole loaf of bread.
I also got to go into a specialty store in Eugene, Oregon.
They had every kind of olive oil you could think of, and also every different type of Balsamic vinegar, too.
It was kind of like a wine tasting. They would pour a dab of the olive oil and vinegar into these little cups. Then you could sip the mixture. I got to taste a lot of different flavors.

I found this recipe on the internet and tried it out. It is so good. It is a little different than what I tasted, but they all taste so good.

Oh Deb, thanks for sharing this!!!! My husband and I are big fans of bread with dipping oil! Ironically, any other time he can go without bread so with all of my new bread baking endeavors, I'm getting a freezer full of bread! This will help me to share the love! Looks so good! Thanks for sharing!
