new favorite recipe

OK now recipe is a bit of a stretch. its maybe the easiest thing to make and its an appetizer. i got the idea from one of my favorite restaurants, Piatti Ristorante & Bar in La Jolla. Instead of bread and butter they bring bread and this amazing olive oil garlic dip. i am not kidding when i say it heaven. so i looked up the ingredients and i found it. i would like to share it with you. 

 Ingredients for Piatti Bread Dip:

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese
  • fresh parsley, chopped (for color)
  • crushed red pepper flakes

Preparation of Piatti Bread Dip:

  1. Pour vinegar and oil into a shallow dish such as a pie dish.
  2. Add garlic, parsley, parmesan cheese, and crushed red pepper. Mix well.
  3. Serve with a variety of breads; sliced.
now crushing the garlic is key. it intensifies the taste. also i could do without the red pepper flakes but its all for taste. also to add something a little more Greg and i added goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes. spread the bread with goat cheese dip the bread in the dip and add the tomatoes. HEAVEN!!!
