Reviews for Olive Oil Dip
"Excellent as dip with beer bread. Will keep it on hand in the pantry"
"Delicious! Will definantly keep it on hand. I used paprika instead of pepper flakes. Nice zip!"
"Was told it was better than they had in expensive Italian restaurants."
"very tasty and easy to make"
"Good recipe. However, we blacken the garlic flakes in the oven and don't bother with blanching (mixing with water to plump). Also, we used cracked black pepper corns and don't use the red pepper flakes."
"I love it and so did my son!! Wonderful!!"
