This Carraba's bread dip copycat is packed with flavor and oh-so-easy to make!
Once the garlic is ready, the cloves should practically be bursting from the bulb. Remove anywhere from half the cloves to all the cloves in the entire head of garlic and blend together with the olive oil using a food processor or blender.
Add the herbs and seasoning blend and let it sit so the flavors can infuse the olive oil. You can dig in after 20 minutes or give it an hour or so, totally up to you!
Try not to skip the roasted garlic; it's too good to leave out! serve with the freshest baguette you can get your hands on! If you're crazy pressed for time you can try sautéing the garlic in oil on the stovetop until fragrant and tender... but the buttery roasted garlic is for sure my favorite part about this delish dip!
When using fresh herbs instead of dried herbs, simply add extra! The dried herbs are more concentrated in flavor so a little extra of the fresh stuff should do the trick! Let your tastebuds be your guide!
Lately I've been adding a little fresh squeezed lemon juice along with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to the mix in place of the parmesan cheese - SO GOOD! The combination reminds me of my Marinated Tomatoes recipe that I'm so obsessed with!
