As long as you serve this dip with a hearty French baguette or your favorite dipping bread, you’ll be sure to enjoy! The best way to experience the goodness is to drag your slice across the olive oil, allowing the bread to sop up the liquids, then add a few chunks of tomato, olive, feta and basil chunks by squeezing the bread together, like a tortilla.
