    Okay, the reason this recipe is so bland is because it calls for too much olive oil. I made it with only one cup of olive oil and it was much better. Try that and see what you think!  -  16 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Loved this dipping oil with crusty hot bread. I did, however, cut the oil in half and added freshly grated parmesan cheese. The fresh basil is a must and added great flavor.  -  16 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Buy really good olive oil. Ordinary olive oil will not cut it for dipping.  -  16 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
