Spicy Dipping Oil for your Focaccia bread needs!

If you're a fan of dipping focaccia bread in olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar, then have I got a treat for you! My husband and I were out in California for our wedding and whilst hanging out in Napa Valley (gorgeous!) we stopped by a restaurant called Celadon. Before we had our meal, they served their own homemade focaccia bread and Spicy Dipping Oil. It was so incredibly flavorful, that I asked the server what was in it. He promptly brought me a recipe printed out on card stock. Yay for awesomeness!

2 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
4 tsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp dried basil
2 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp herbes de Provence (I didn't use this and it turned out just fine!)
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cups olive oil

Combine the first six ingredients in a large bowl. Stir to mix. Add balsamic vinegar and mix well. Let sit five minutes. Slowly whisk in olive oil.

Enjoy your spicy dipping oil with fresh focaccia bread!
