Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Bread Dip: A Definite Crowd-Pleaser

Olive oil and balsamic vinegar combine with herbs and garlic for the easiest and most delicious appetizer you've ever had! Best enjoyed with crusty French bread and a big glass of red wine! It's simple and easy to throw together. If you need a last-minute appetizer that you can make in just minutes, this is it.


➢ ½ cup olive oil

➢ 3 cloves garlic, minced

➢ 1 teaspoon dried oregano

➢ 1 teaspoon dried thyme

➢ Kosher salt

➢ fresh cracked pepper

➢ 5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

➢ ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

➢ sliced French baguette for serving


➢ In a small saucepan combine olive oil and garlic over medium-low heat. Heat for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

➢ Remove from heat, stir in oregano, thyme, and a moderate pinch of salt and pepper.

➢ Pour oil mixture into a wide shallow serving dish.

➢ Pour in balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan.

➢ Serve with sliced French baguette for dipping and enjoy!


Use fresh garlic. Don't use a jar of minced garlic. Grab some fresh cloves and mince them yourself. Fresh garlic is usually cheaper and honestly, you have no idea how long those jars of garlic have been sitting on the shelf before you buy them.

Use quality olive oil. You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get good olive oil. Look for something cold-pressed, organic and most importantly in your price range!

Shred your own Parmesan cheese. Pre-shredded cheeses are coated in cellulose so the shreds don't stick together. Skip the additives and opt for a wedge of Parmesan. There is nothing more delicious than freshly grated cheese! Order for fresh Parmigiano Reggiano from Zanetti and Montanari Gruzza with us.

Buon appetit!
