What a great recipe. Before I found this recipe, I never flavoured the extra virgin olive oil for dipping. I served this dip at my daughter's birthday party and this dip was such a hit to the extent that everyone went home with Myrna's recipe. This recipe is a wonderful addition to an olive oil dip with fresh crusty bread. Thank you very much for sharing.
