Pretty much the most amazing flavors on Earth..... I snagged the recipe ingredients to this DIVINE dipping oil from the sommelier at my new favorite restaurant on the planet- Celadon, in Napa Valley. This oil is sooooooo darn good- just grab a fresh crusty baguette and dig in! ***(The ingredients below are not in exact measurements- add a little of this and a little of that until the flavors match your taste. If you make in a larger batch, it tastes even better the next day!)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon herbes de provence
  • 12 teaspoon mixed Italian herbs
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pinch chili pepper flakes
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 12 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Place all of the ingredients on a plate, swirl with a spoon or fork, let sit for at least 10 minutes before digging in!

This was very good and I enjoyed having a new use for herbes de provance. It has plenty of flavor & went well with homemade french bread. Next time I will use less balsamic vinegar in the mix as some diners didn't enjoy the strong flavor. I added a few more red peppers. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

For me this dipping oil was perfect. I liked it with all the spices and balsamic vinegar. I used a great quality of extra virgin olive oil. So I knew it would be great. Thanks hollyfrolly :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
