Herb Blend for Dipping Oil

You know when you go to a restaurant and they serve you bread and dipping oil as a starter?  Well, here is a version of that! J  I store this in a cute little airtight glass container I found at the dollar store.  (Doubles as a decoration too!) Just prepare a batch whenever!  This is also great to give as a gift (as pictured).

Sooo, good!  ‘Nuff said.

1 Tablespoon dried minced garlic
1 Tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper 

1 Tablespoon water
½ cup olive oil
1 French bread baguette

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients.  Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.

TO PREPARE DIPPING OIL: In a small microwavable bowl, combine 4 teaspoons herb mix with water.  Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds.  Drain excess water.  Transfer to a shallow serving plate; add oil and stir.  Serve with bread. 

Yield: 3 batches, ¼ cup total
