Mediterranean Bread Dip

I serve this as a dip for my Almond Flour Focaccia and Rosemary & Sea Salt Peasant Bread.

SO good!

I literally ate a quarter of a loaf of Rosemary & Sea Salt Peasant Bread w/ this for dinner one night after following a really badly written recipe for a first attempt at a Penne alla Vodka recipe – I didn’t even care that the pasta was a loss b/c this is delicious! Okay, maybe I also ate some salad. Ha!

FUN FACTS: We all know something similar as an appetizer service at *Italian* restaurants here in SoCal, right? This is NOT an Italian food at all. No one seems to know *for sure* where this started, but I vote to keep it!!!

TIPS: Omit the Parmesan to make this recipe OvoVege, Paleo, Vegan, or Whole30.

Cali-Mediterranean Bread Dip Recipe

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat on stovetop.
  2. Add 1/2 cup EVOO and heat.
  3. Add 4 tsp garlic and sauté for 30 secs (or until fragrant).
  4. Transfer oil mixture to a serving bowl. I use a pasta bowl b/c it’s wide and balanced, with enough depth to keep the goodness from spilling out!
  5. Add 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.
  6. Stir in 1/4 cup parmesan, 2 Tbsp oregano, and 1/4 tsp pepper.
