Greg’s favorite restaurant is this local Italian place called Oliverio’s Ristorante. When we go there we usually eat a few bread sticks. Over the years Greg has created his own dip at this restaurant, which he gleaned from another Italian eatery. He mixes olive oil and Parmesan cheese to make the BEST bread dip I have ever had. One day we left with a bag of bread sticks along with our left overs and I was determined to remake this dip concoction.
It’s really simple to recreate and it’s delicious. It’s also a healthier alternative to margarine or butter because it contains mostly monounsaturated fat. I tried to figure out the right portions of each ingredient while avoiding the stores and using what I had at my house.
Here’s all you need:
1. Grated parmesan
2. Mediterranean dipping oil
3. Extra Virgin olive oil
4. Crushed red peppers
Now, the easy part. Place the following ingredients in a small glass jar:
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Mediterranean Dipping oil (optional)
1/2 teaspoons of crushed red peppers (adjust this according to your love of hot. I am weak, and this ingredient is all together optional)
1/8 teaspoon of salt
Next place the lid on the jar and shake! Shake the jar until all of the ingredients mix together.
That’s it! Enjoy!
