When you think of the greatest Italian dishes, your mind can't help but reminisce about the flavor of garlic. This dip is the essence of that flavor. Combined with crushed red pepper and oregano, the taste is powerfully evocative of how you imagine Italian cuisine should taste.
Uses: Mix 1 tablespoon with 1/4 cup olive oil and let set for half an hour to allow the herbs and spices to soften. A tablespoon of freshly grated parmesan cheese stirred in makes this insanely good.
