Spicy Herb and Olive Oil Dip

This dipping sauce is SO GOOD. I originally made it for a bread party as a dip for French bread but then went on to use it in bruschetta and as a spice mix for soup. It’s a little spicy when it’s not just mixed with oil, so you could half the red pepper flakes if you don’t like it that way. But, like I said, as a dip I think it is just fine. I think I am going to keep this spice mix around from now on, it works for so many things!

2 Tbs Red pepper flakes
2 Tbs Ground black pepper
2 Tbs Dried oregano
2 Tbs Dried rosemary
2 Tbs Dried basil
2 Tbs Dried parsley
2 Tbs Garlic powder
2 tsp Salt
4 Tbs Garlic, minced
1 C+ Olive oil (depending on how much dip you want)

Mix all of the above spices together. To make dip, shake 3-4 Tbs of the spice mixture with ~1 C olive oil in an air-tight container and let marinate for a few hours before serving.

Recipe produces 1 cup of spice mix. If you want to keep the spice mix around for multiple things, I would mix up all the spices except the fresh garlic and keep it in an air-tight container.
