Olive Oil Bread Dip

I love to linger over a meal. A nice long dinner with Darren melts my heart. The problem is, food gets cold. So I like to come up with foods to dawdle over. Food that’s good to pick at. Food that doesn’t wilt or tire. Food that lets conversation go on and on.

Dippy bread works quite lovely. Rounds of baguette mounded on a plate served with a saucer of olive oil bread dip. Here’s our current favourite, I think there’s a touch too much balsamic vinegar, but Darren thinks it’s just right.

Olive Oil Bread Dip

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Clove of Garlic, Minced
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar {or a little less}
1/2 Tbsp Oregano, Dried

Whisk together in a bowl. Pour onto a rimmed plate with a side of fresh bread. Serve after dinner but before dessert. Candle optional, intimate conversation preferred.

What are your favourite foods to draw out a meal? Finger foods like breads and cheeses? Do you prefer dessert foods like pies and cakes? Or is a good glass of wine all you need?
