    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This is a recipe very similar to the bread dipping oil they give you at Bravo (an Italian chain restaurant in the USA). My hubby loves it. Serve with rosemary foccacia as they do at Bravo or with your favorite bread (I love french bread or sourdough bread with this). If you like things spicy, feel free to add some crushed red pepper.

      We LOVED this recipe! It tastes fantastic and is so easy to make! I had never made a dipping oil with sundried tomato paste but it absolutely made this dish, so I was probably a bit generous with the paste! Mine sat for about 24 hours before being used. I'll make this very often! Made for ZWT7.

      When I first made this and tasted it I was not impressed. But after sitting for a few hours the flavors blended together and it was very good. I often substitute fresh rosemary for the dry and I always make it the day before now. Thanks for the recipe.

      GREAT TASTING & EXTREMELY EASY TO MAKE! Served this with slices of both sourdough bread & a whole wheat bread from Costco that we like, & both were very satisfying! Yet another very nice dip that I can add to my finger food counter from now on! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a recipenap in the current Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 16]
