Olive Oil Bread Dip Is So Simple
This olive oil bread dip is anything but complicated and for a person who tends to over think things, that is spectacular. I am one of those people who over thinks everything. Sometimes, I really don’t even know how I live with myself. There are days where I start this process from the moment I get up and it continues until I go to bed.
I can overthink my outfits, my lunch, my to-do list and my choice in dessert. If a friend doesn’t text back, I overthink the meaning, if my husband is unusually quiet, I spend too much time thinking about it, if my kids are giving each other sideways glances, I overthink the meaning of that too (of course, I probably have good reason for that one). It’s an exhausting way to be.
I take my overthinking to a whole new level when it comes to menu planning for dinner parties. I have to have the right about of appetizers; a good variety too. The main course and sides have to be complimentary and the dessert has to be perfect; not too heavy and not too light. Then of couse, there are the cocktails. I overthink dinner parties to an extreme which means I tend to make way more food than necessary. The problem is, I don’t know how to stop this behavior.
All you need is Olive Oil Bread Dip
Instead of making King Ranch Chicken Dip, Garlic Bread Cheese Dip, Ranch Soft Pretzel Bites and Sticky Stout Chicken Wings to kick off my dinner party, I should just serve an antipasta tray and this olive oil bread dip; it would save me loads of time and eliminate my anxiety.
This olive oil bread dip is made with a handful of ingredients, many of which you probably already have in your pantry. It starts with Pompeian Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The delicate flavor of this olive oil is mellow enough to allow each individual seasoning and her to stand out. Pompeian White Wine Vinegar adds a touch of acidity without overpowering. Minced garlic, dried basil, dried oregano and parsley add more flavor while red pepper flakes and a pinch of paprika add heat. This dip is perfect with warm, crusty bread.
I have to remember to not overthink things, that sometimes simple is best.
