Carrabba's Bread Dipping Blend
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Rating: 3.9 (8 reviews)
 

When you sit down for Italian-style grub at one of the more than 168 nationwide Carrabba's restaurants, you're first served a small plate with a little pile of herbs and spices in the middle to which the waiter adds olive oil. Now you're set up to dip your sliced bread in the freshly flavored oil. To craft a version of this tasty blend at home you'll need a coffee bean grinder or a small food processor to finely chop the ingredients.

1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

I worked at carrabbas for the longest time. DONT USE DRY INGREDIENTS!!!! The recipe calls for basil, rosemary, parsely, thyme, granulated garlic, fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, black pepper, and kosher salt. Also, all ingredients are hand chopped. When you use a food processor, alot of the natural flavor is lost. Lastly, the fresh garlic is dried with a paper towel before being added to the mix, keeping the mix dry so it does not form lumps. Hope this helps you all trying to perfect this recipe.

The secret to the lemony taste of this dip is not lemon, but the use of only SPANISH extra virgin olive oil, which has the lemony bite to it. Without the Spanish extra virgin olive oil, the dip will never taste like Carrabba's. So omit the lemon and also, omit the thyme. All spices are dried, except garlic which is both dried and fresh, and the parsley is fresh.

I don't believe the lemon juice is in it but without it, it tastes perfect.

In my opinion, this recipe did not taste like Carrabba's.

Without the lemon juice, this recipe tastes exactly like the dipping spices at the Carrabba's we go to!!!
