Thanks to Bertolli for sending me a sample bottle of Bertolli Lighter Tasting Olive Oil in exchange for writing my review. Because of that, I created this delicious Garlic Infused Olive Oil Dipping Sauce that you will LOVE. All opinions listed are my own.
While I was in Cleveland a couple of weeks ago, we got to eat dinner at a 5 star restaurant complete with a delicious 5 course menu. It was heaven on earth I tell you! I can’t wait to share with you this recipe that I made because of something delicious I ate there!

My favorite dish of the night was not anything on the menu (although that duck and brie roll came really close), but it was the delicious garlic infused olive oil dipping sauce at the table served with bread that was my favorite of the night.
There is just something about a really good pressed olive oil mixed with herbs that bring together a great piece of bread. We sprinkled salt flakes into ours and dipped all night. My taste buds were in pure heaven.
I decided that when I got home after that trip, that I was going to work myself to the bone to recreate that same olive oil dipping sauce for my own bread.
