Discover the story
Indulge in the perfect pairing of warm grilled bread and savory dipping oil!

This week in the WOT Test Kitchen, we created this Savory Dipping Oil with Grilled Bread — A simple and delicious appetizer that can be prepared quickly and we think, should be made often.

The flavors of this dipping oil come together beautifully to create a savory and aromatic oil that pairs perfectly with the grilled bread. The dish is finished off by rubbing the grilled bread with a clove of garlic, adding an irresistible flavor depth. This recipe is the perfect starter for any meal or can be served as a quick snack.
