Herbed parmesan dipping oil

Only takes a matter of minutes to make and a few minutes to devour! Delicious, before, during and even after dinner!

This post is part of a Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with Crisco Olive Oil. As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received three bottles of Crisco Olive Oil to sample - Extra Virgin, Pure and Light. 

I LOVE olive oil. My first real experience with it was at a local sub shop in Omaha, Nebraska. It took me years to realize that the reason I loved their subs so much was because they put olive oil on them. So I started asking for olive oil at every sub shop I went to. Ever since, I've been an olive oil fanatic. I buy the extra large bottles at the grocery store because I go through them so quickly.

I was overjoyed to receive Crisco Olive Oil in the mail. My wheels instantly started turning. Should I make subs? Like the old days when I first discovered the beauty of olive oil? Naahhh. I decided to do something simple. Something that would really make me enjoy olive oil. Because I love the taste of it.

I threw this Parmesan dipping oil together in a matter of minutes and my husband and I gobbled it down after dinner. Yes, after dinner. It was deicious, what can I say?!

Throw the following ingredients together in a small, lidded mason jar:

1/2 cup Crisco Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 large clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

Shake well and pour onto small plates. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese before serving. Use as a dip for crusty French or Italian bread.

Next on my list? An olive-oil-laden sub sandwich! Stay tuned.
