Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Dipping Sauce

Olive Oil with Olives

I love simple foods and therefore, I cook simply. I aim for a variety of colours, tastes and textures. One of my favourite starters is Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Dipping Sauce paired with a hearty bread

Imagine dining with friends you haven’t seen in a while at a sweet restaurant and starting lunch or dinner with this treat. It never fails that you are always asking the server to bring more.   

The trick to a great oil and vinegar dip is the quality of the ingredients, don't skimp.
