Olive Oil Dip – Dipping Sauce for Bread

The Best Olive Oil Dip

This Olive Oil Dip is very refreshing and it can be made to your specific tastes.  I personally like the fresh herbs mixed with the salt and sour of the Balsamic Vinegar that just hugs the palate as it’s washed down with some smooth Olive Oil.  I generally dip bread sticks or pull chunks off of a french or Italian loaf.  But this can be used over Pasta or as a Salad Dressing, it’s that good.  If you like it spicy, just add some Red Pepper or Chili Flakes.  If you like more herbs or even dried seasonings like Oregano or Thyme, feel free to add what ever you want.  This only gets better over time.  So if you have time to make this in advance so it has a chance to marinate, it’s going to be that much better.

What goes good with Olive Oil Dip

The best thing to serve with an Olive Oil Dip is Bread.  I like to use my Pizza Dough recipe to make breadsticks because that’s my favorite thing to dip but not limited to.  It’s also a great alternative to pizza sauce and not just for dipping.  Drizzle and brush this sauce into a rolled out pizza pie, before adding your favorite toppings, and you’ll have one hell of a pie.  I make a much simpler version of this dip recipe and apply it to my Margherita Pizza if you’re interested in looking into that.  It’s quite delicious.  Brush this over Calzones or Stromboli’s(my recipes are amazing, fyi), after baking or even a fresh loaf of bread.  It also makes a great marinade for meats like chicken or beef and all kinds of seafood or vegetables before and after roasting.

If you’re interested in dipping sauces for your bread, other than this Olive Oil Dip, try my Alfredo Sauce or my Pizza Sauce.  Both are excellent choices.  If you even want to be bold and try a new twist, I highly recommend that you try this Alfredo and Cheese Sauce.  It will blow your mind.
