Pesto Dipping Oil

This is absolutely my favorite and easiest appetizer for entertaining. It is simply delicious with its combination of balsamic vineger, pesto and Parmesan cheese. Use it to marinate cubes of cheese and mushrooms for another simple appetizer.—Alice Schucard, Carlsbad, California

    I'm a big fan of dipping bread in seasoned oil. This was a great variation, will definitely make again.
