Dipping oil with herbs mix for Italian bread

Sunday, June 28, 2009
There is nothing like a fresh loaf of Italian bread dipped in herbs and extra virgin olive oil. This is served often in an Italian American household on a Sunday with a big macaroni dinner. We love this kind of appetizer with a little wine, vino and this dipping oil is a delicious starter to a main course. You will also find it in many Italian restaurants in New York.
