Know how at some Italian restaurants they give you the option of both butter and a dish with herbed olive when they bring out the bread? I found that I actually prefer the olive oil dip to butter in terms of both taste and ease to use; I don't have to wait for olive oil to melt! Plus, olive oil is monounsaturated fat that's better for you while butter is saturated fat that isn't. I use Italian Seasoning, feel free to use another mix or storebought seasoning-- tastes just like the kind in restaurants to enjoy with focaccia or crusty Italian bread.
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- Whisk the two together with a fork, dip your bread in, and enjoy.
