Sun Dried Tomato Dipping Oil
This is a sponsored post for HemisFares™ brand that is available exclusively at Kroger family of stores. All opinions are honest and 100% my own.
Dip your crusty bakery bread loaf in true Italian flavor with this easy to make sun-dried tomato dipping oil.
One of my favorite things about going out to dinner is when the waiter brings a basket of fresh bread and a plate of dipping oil as we look over the menu to order.
Have you ever created your own dipping oil at home to go along with fresh baked bread?
It's easier than you think and I promise my recipe will put a smile on the faces of everyone at the dinner table.
The secret is in the olive oil!
Travel to Italy and experience a culinary journey without ever having to leave home. I'm excited to partner up with Kroger to explore Italy as the first stop in the HemisFares brand tour.
While you may already be aware of Kroger's Simple Truth and Private Selection labels, HemisFares is coming to a Kroger near you to showcase the best food finds from around the world.
For my first stop, Italia, I am showcasing HemisFares Find No. 48 - their 100% Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
I'm lucky to have traveled to Italy during my college years and what I remember most is how delicious everything tasted. Authentic is how I would describe true Italian foods.
So I feel lucky to have found this olive oil grown from olives grown in the Sicily region of Italy. Velvety with notes of artichokes, almonds and pepper - this oil is perfect for creating my sun-dried tomato and basil dipping oil.
Served alongside a boule of crusty Italian bread, you'll taste fresh basil paired with sun-dried tomatoes and salty grated parmesan cheese in my dipping oil. It's the perfect accompaniment to any homemade loaf.
Yes...you may have to make more than one bread boule when making this dipping oil. It's that good!
If you don't have the time to make your own loaf, hit the bakery of your local Kroger store for the freshest Italian boule.

2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
