Wonderful recipe! This stuff is so delicious and makes a great appetizer served with warm fresh bread. I love to get this in restaurants and it was nice to be able to do this at home. I cut the recipe in half and cut the olive oil with a little melted butter (a little trick I just learned from a local restaruant). You can easily put the dry ingredients in a little tupperware container to store for next time then add the rest when ready to serve. Perfect with a glass of wine! Read More

HOT! Left out peppers, & it's still hot. Not a family friendly recipe. I can't believe I wasted 2 cups of a really high grade olive oil & fresh ingredients for this. I'm sorry. This is a thumbs down from my family. Read More

I had a loaf of French bread and was looking for something to dip it in. I found this recipe and whipped up half a batch in case I didn't like it. I left out the black and red pepper because I had radiation treatments for a throat cancer and my mouth and throat can no longer take the heat. Even with these omissions, it is delicious. I have already eaten half of the loaf of bread with this. A definite keeper and so easy to do. Any cook should have all of the ingredients in house. By the way, the cancer is gone. Praise the Lord.

LOVE! I always have this around, now. I just chuck whatever is left from the meal in the fridge, and pull it out a bit before using the next time around. Awesomeness. Read More

We dislike red pepper in our home so I did not add this. Otherwise the recipe was great. I used fresh ingredients as opposed to dried/minced and used my blender to chop/blend all of the seasonings together. It was splendid. We had it with fresh Italian bread. Read More

Very good! I mix up all the dry spices - I substitute garlic powder for the fresh garlic, and I omit the lemon juice and parmesan - and store it in a jar. Then I just sprinkle a little into some olive oil whenever we want it - easy to store, and quick and easy to whip up a little batch! Read More

I feel like an idiot for all the times I have spent money on prepared mixes for making dipping oils. This was so easy and I had everything in my cupboard. DELICIOUS. I made it for an evening with my gal pals and everyone loved it. Excellent recipe! Read More

This is was really delicious! We cut the recipe in half though because there were only 4 of us eating it. 32 servings is a little much.: We also added a teeny tiny bit more salt but this is definitely 5 stars worth of goodness. Read More

This is very good as written but I like more cheese so I added about 1/2 cup Feta and blended it into the oil mixture using a stick blender, making it almost smooth. It was just delicious. I doubled the recipe and keep the remainder in the fridge, stirring it up before using as a sandwich spread. Awesome, thanks for a great recipe. Read More
