16 Visitor Comment About This Recipe
  • tremendous dipping oil

  • This dipping sauce was great. The one thing my husband did was to saute a garlic clove in olive oil and then add all of the ingredients to the sauce. We have now put some olives in the rest of the sauce for tomorrow night. Thank you very much.

  • WOW! Better than what I've had in the best restaurants.

  • Sucks! Too much salt and spice. Was this a joke?

  •! This stuff is GREAT! Thank you!

  • My Sissy-in-law made this for us while we were visiting them for the holidays and it was awesome!!! I liked it so much that I've asked for the recipe!!!:-)

  • This has become my signature contribution---with bread from my bread machine---to every potluck. I have given a package of this mix (double batch), loaf of bread and small bottle of olive oil as a gift.

  • This recipe is outstanding. Wonderful dipping oil and great for an easy quick appetizer.

  • We made this recipe in bulk for our wedding reception of 110 people. We served it with cubed Pugliese bread (Costco french bread). It complemented the Italian meal we served. You would not believe the positive comments. People asked over and over where the recipe came from. The only change that was made was that the recipe was made a couple days ahead of time for convenience sake. The dipping oil was shook up so that a little bit of the ingredients made it into each serving dish. This site was given credit. Thanks for sharing the recipe online.

  • This receipe is really good, I didn't realize that I didn't have the parsley or the granulated garlic, even still it came out really good. Next time I will try the full receipe.

  • The BEST dipping oil and I use it as a base for chicken artichoke pizza. Yummy I sometime use italian seasonings instead of the oregano, rosemary, basil, and parsley

  • I use this all the time, it is fabulous!!!

  • I have been to Carabba's, and wanted to know the ingredients. I made this and took it to a party, with rave reviews. Thanks!

  • Awesome - I make it all the time (when we are "allowed" bread). We all like the "bite" from the cayenne!

  • I used to work at Carrabba's and I know that one of the ingredients in this herb mix is anchovies. I can't remember all the ingredients, but I haven't found a "copy" of it that has anchovies in it.

  • Ive been making a similar dipping oil for a long time. If you want to use the oil right away, add all ingredients to oil and pop in the microwave for about 10 seconds and all the flavours will disperse into the oil. I also add fresh parmasean cheese instead of salt.
