Easy Bread Dipping Oil with Fresh Basil


Do you love the smell of fresh basil? Do you enjoy pesto? This dipping sauce combines all the fresh flavors of basil, garlic, and olive oil to create a delicious dipping sauce.

First, start off with some delicious fresh pesto. You can use my recipe, or create your own with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. I love fresh basil and so I use that as my main herb.

Dollop a tablespoon or so onto a plate, add some chopped toasted walnuts, Parmesan cheese, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with a little kosher salt.

Homemade bread is especially good dipped in it. So yummy!

Have you ever made your own dipping sauce before? How was it?

My basil going to seed now, it’s almost time to harvest those seeds and to save basil seeds for next year!
