Chunky Olive Oil Dip

Chunky Olive Oil Dip

Who said Super Bowl food had to be all about greasy hot dogs and chili beans?

 

So since the big Super Bowl party is approaching, I’ve got a quick and delicious recipe for you to showcase all of California’s bounty. From greenhouse tomatoes to ripe green and black olives, it will certainly have your guests begging for more. This dip is easy to serve in a shallow plate or whenever the crowd gets larger, you can always use a platter.

Above all, the key here is using fresh ingredients and a high quality olive oil. The olive oil is buttery and fragrant, undeniably contributing to the yum factor!

This stuff is awesome and all things considered, not overpowering.

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.  

 

Olive Oil being Poured onto Plate

So, let’s get started by pouring your olive oil in the bottom of a dish.

 

Crushed garlic being added into olive oil on plate

Add as much crushed garlic until your heart is full and stir.

 

Balsamic vinegar being added over olive oil and garlic

Then drizzle balsamic over the olive oil and crushed garlic. 

 

Tomatoes being added to all

Top with a mountain of tomatoes.

 

Chopped green and black olives being added over tomatoes

Chopped green and black olives are equally as important to add.

 

Feta cheese being added over black and green olives

Of course we’ll want to top with a healthy portion of feta cheese.

 

Thinly sliced basil and ground pepper being added over all the toppings

Lastly, finishing topping all the ingredients with thinly sliced basil and ground black pepper.
