Carabba's Bread Dip

From: Macaroni and Cheesecake

2 tbsp. chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. dried basil (or 1 tbsp. fresh-if using fresh reduce parsley to 1 tbsp.)
1/8 tsp. dried rosemary (or 1/2 tsp. fresh)
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper (or 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes)
1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp. fresh lemon juice

Place all ingredients except olive oil & lemon in a blender or food processor and chop until all ingredients are similar in size. Stir in the olive oil & lemon juice.

To serve:
In a small dish, place 1 1/2 tsp. spice mixture. Pour 3-4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil over top of the spice mixture. Serve with french bread for dipping.

Makes 1/4 cup.

Thumbs up! I love this picture - someone's hand is sneaking a piece of homemade Italian bread. :)   I made this as a surprise for Stephen because he loves those dips you get in the restaurants. This was incredibly easy to make, and it was such a yummy dipping sauce. A big "yes" from the whole family! Highly recommend!
