Italian Dipping Sauce

Submitted by:

A fast dipping sauce with lots of fresh Italian flavors. And so much healthier than butter.

  • Servings: 6

Ingredients:

Loaf of Ciabatta Bread, cut into 1" cubes
½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic
¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp Fresh Herb of Choice, chopped
¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Directions:

Smash garlic with a heavy pan or the side of a large knife and remove skins. Put peeled garlic into a shallow bowl and add remaining ingredients. Do not stir (you want the oil and vinegar to form pretty layers.) Serve immediately.

Helpful Tips:

My family likes this with robust Italian food such as spaghetti or roasted stuffed peppers.
