A Simple Italian Herb Dip That Tastes Anything But Simple

When my husband and I were dating (a million years ago), one of our favorite places to go was Carrabba's. But it never failed, we would order our food and then they would bring out that warm crusty bread with that mouth watering herb dip with oil and we would stuff ourselves full - and the actual meals we ordered were enjoyed the next day as leftovers.

What is it about this dip that is so inviting? Or is it the loaf of bread served with it? Anyways, I've got the perfect copycat recipe of that same Italian herb and oil dip that's perfect for dunking and will leave you wanting to soak up every last drop!

And that's it! Super easy, right? You can use any olive oil, but my favorite is from 1836: A Texas Olive Oil Company.
