Sun-Dried Tomato Olive Oil Dipping Sauce

an last minute dipping oil to impress

I literally made this recipe up on the fly. I needed a quick solution for an impromptu gathering and decided I couldn’t go wrong with crusty bread and olive oil dip.

I had some leftover tomato paste in the fridge and decided to start there. Once I figured out the ratio of paste to oil, I started adding some flavor. Garlic is my jam so I minced up a couple of cloves. Then added equal parts dried basil, thyme and rosemary.

Everyone loves cheese, so I quickly grated a little parmesan cheese to add some texture. After my initial taste test, I added the salt and opted for some heat with a pinch of crushed red pepper. Viola! An easy dipping sauce was born.
