Since I'm back to baking more bread after a summer hiatus, I thought I'd share the recipe for my herb dipping oil. My sister-in-law introduced us to this years ago. I love it with a bread such as ciabatta but it doesn't have to be homemade bread, just pick up your favorite crusty bread at your grocery store.
I mix up a batch of this seasoning to have ready when the bread urge hits. To serve I swirl a little olive oil on a small plate for each person and sprinkle some herbs on it. Then we tear into the bread and mop up the oil. Yum.
Herb Dipping Oil Seasoning
1 T oregano
1 T rosemary
1 T basil
1 T parsley
1 T garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Mix all together. Store in an air-tight container.
You may adjust seasonings to your liking. Options would include adding red pepper.
To Serve: Place a thin layer of olive oil on a plate. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two on the oil. Serve with crusty bread.
