I love the dipping oil served at my two favorite Italian restaurants. Both restaurants vary slightly in ingredients. Here is my version that brings the best of both worlds. Serve with warm bread fresh out of the oven and enjoy!
- ½ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup fresh basil, washed,dried and chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
- Pour olive oil into a shallow bowl.
- Add basil, garlic and pepper.
- Stir with a spoon to evenly distribute ingredients.
- Serve with warm bread.
