This was very good. We had an Italian night and needed something like this. Granted, I was easy on the red pepper flakes, but ended up added more. Everyone thought it was outstanding. I simmered it a short amount of time in the microwave (becasue my son-in-law says the health department requires his restaraunt too)so that it would last longer. Very good and easy.
I added a little freshly grated Parmesan cheese and it was perfect with some whole wheat italian crusty bread. Simple and delicious!
I served this at our dinner club's poolside party. I doubled the recipe but used only 1/2 Tbsp of red pepper flakes. I also added a glub-glub of balsamic vinegar to the serving dish. It was tasty and spicy enough for all. There were some "dregs" of seasonings left in the jar I mixed it in, so I added more olive oil and vinegar and used on a salad the next night. A very tasty bonus!
Awesome! I ate a little without balsamic vinegar, and it was good, then I added the vinegar and it was great. I ate it with warm pita bread.
Yummy! I added a couple dashes of balsamic vinegar to pep it up. Served it with fresh french bread . I also used it on our sandwiches and look forward to serving it again. Thank you for posting your recipe.
Outstanding and super easy! Will make this many, many more times!
Excellent! I loved it. It was easy, fast and delicious! I definitely make it again.
Fantastic dip. I left out the red pepper flakes because we don't care for hot food. It was still awesome. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing
This olive oil dip had more flavor than the one we had at an Italian restaraunt. The longer it sits the hotter it seems to get. Thanks polly salama. Bullwinkle
This was absolutely delicious! I like to use this with Italian bread, but I also have a cool variation to try. I often make pita chips by taking pita bread and cutting it into wedges. Then I lightly brush this mixture over the wedges and toast them in the oven to make delicious pita chips! Great for dipping into any dip in lou of potato chips and it's also great to dip into hummus. :)
