How to Make Famous Italian Restaurant Dipping Oil


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl except olive oil. Whisk in olive oil until it reaches the olive oil to spice ratio that you like. (Some like more, some less. I use about 1 cup.) Pour into small, shallow oil dipping bowls and add a few drops of balsamic vinegar to each. Serve with warm Italian bread.
