Herbed Garlic Dipping Oil

Talk about versatility! This herb-infused oil has many uses. Spread over halved French bread and broil until toasted, toss with hot pasta, or simply use as a full-flavored dipping oil. —Dawn Embry-Rodriguez, Florence, Colorado

    This is excellent and I would definitely make again. Please note: I added all ingredients and blended which resulted in a brown "muddy" looking dip. It was still delicious but would have looked much more appetizing if I had added the balsamic vinegar separately and followed the directions!
