Recipe by Brandess
Dipping warm, crusty breads in olive oil and balsamic is big thing in California. Here is a great recipe for a dip to keep on hand. Stored in an airtight container and refrigerated, this mixture should last at least 6 months. I like to add crushed red pepper flakes to spice things up!

Love at first bite! This is a great blend of flavors and my favorite is to let it set overnight at room temperature and use it to dip roasted chicken in! I have made this recipe 3 times so far and we really love it. I add all the ingredients to a clean lidded container and shake the container vigorously. For guests, I like to make the dipping oil as directed and then pour a bit of olive oil in the plate and then pour the dipping oil in the middle. It makes such a pretty presentation. (see my picture) It always come out beautifully! Thanks for another great recipe Brandess!!
