Loved this dipping oil with crusty hot bread. I did however cut the oil in half and added freshly grated parmesan cheese. The fresh basil is a must and added great flavor. Read More

Okay the reason this recipe is so bland is because it calls for too much olive oil. I made it with only one cup of olive oil and it was much better. Try that and see what you think! Read More

Buy really good olive oil. Ordinary olive oil will not cut it for dipping. Read More

I love things very flavorful & spicy so I only used about 1/4c olive oil. Tasty! I have decided that I am not a huge fan of red pepper flakes so next time I will make this with loads of fresh garlic instead. Read More

Makes a lovely flavored olive oil for cooking with but I would not try this recipe again for a bread dip. It was so thick and oily and lacked flavor I didn't even serve it to my guests. But as I said before a nice recipe for a flavored oil. Read More
