I could eat an entire loaf of bread dipped in this tasty oil!! This is a versatile recipe, adjust the herbs and spices to your taste. This can be kept in the fridge for up to a month, bring it to room temperature and stir it before serving.

Not very appealing to the eye. Tasted much to strong of the balsamic vinegar as the recipe is. I will not make it again.

First time making dipping oil, yummy!! The only modification I made is that I used Tarragon vinegar instead of balsamic, I was out.
