Bread-Dipping Spices

Submitted by: JustRightMenus


If you sprinkle some of this spice onto a plate and pour a couple tablespoons of good olive oil over it, you can then serve it with bread and give someone a new addiction. This is SO very good. We have it on Fancy Dinner Nights, as an appetizer.

This also makes a great gift - put it in a cute jar & package it with a nice bottle of olive oil (try to find a fancy-looking bottle they can keep & refill) and maybe even a loaf of home-made bread!).

Servings: lots!

From the kitchen of:

I found it online, touted as a Carrabbas Italian Restaurant recipe.


1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 tsp rosemary

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 TB oregano

1 TB basil

1 TB parsley

1 TB thyme

1 TB minced garlic

1/8 tsp lemon juice


Mix ingredients together in a food processor (or crush together w/ a mortar and pestle?)

Pour out onto a paper towel to dry before storing in a small jar.


(I usually store it in an empty spice jar.. I think mine used to have thyme in it.)
