Carrabba's Bread Dip recipe - the real thing! Recipe straight from Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Parsley, basil, rosemary, oregano, garlic, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, black pepper, and olive oil. Can make the spice mixture in advance and store it in an airtight container until ready to serve. We LOVE this spice blend! Great appetizer or salad dressing for spaghetti night. Also makes a great addition to your charcuterie board!
⅛tspcrushed hot red pepper flakes
¼tspfreshly ground black pepper
⅓cupextra-virgin olive oil
Sliced crusty rustic bread for dipping
Mix the parsley, basil, rosemary, oregano, granulated garlic, hot red pepper, salt, and pepper together in a small serving bowl.
Add the olive oil and stir. Serve with the bread for dipping.
Carrabba's uses fresh parsley, fresh basil, and fresh rosemary. I prefer to use all dry spices.
Feel free to substitute fresh herbs. You will need 3 times as many fresh herbs as dried herbs.
For this recipe you will need:
1 1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
3/4 teaspoon fresh chopped basil
3/4 teaspoon fresh chopped rosemary
If using fresh herbs, mix the spices in a small food processor.
Carrabba's uses granulated garlic in their spice mixture. Feel free to substitute fresh garlic. I actually prefer to make this a fresh garlic clove. I like lots of garlic flavor!!
Feel free to add some grated parmesan cheese to the spice mixture. YUM!
Serve the olive oil herb dip with your favorite bread. Crusty Italian bread, warm french bread, or warm sourdough bread all work great.
You can easily double, triple or quadruple the spice mixture.
Store mixture in an airtight container at room temperature.
