    Used different ingredients. Loved this dipping oil with crusty hot bread. I did, however, cut the oil in half and added freshly grated parmesan cheese. The fresh basil is a must and added great flavour. - 29 Sep 2008


    Buy really good olive oil. Ordinary olive oil will not cut it for dipping. - 29 Sep 2008


    Okay, the reason this recipe is so bland is because it calls for too much olive oil. I made it with only one cup of olive oil and it was much better. Try that and see what you think! - 29 Sep 2008
