My daughter recently shared this recipe for Garlicky Balsamic Dip, which was adapted from the Tastes Better From Scratch blog and cookbook.
She left me with the cookbook to try a few new recipes, and I immediately had to try this dip. Not only did it sound delicious, but it was easy for me to make having all the ingredients on hand in my fridge and pantry.
The original recipe suggests using this as a bread dip. It is deliciously soaked up by the bread slices. But it also tastes great a a veggie dip. I tried it with sliced radishes and cauliflower florets I had in my veggie drawer, and it tasted great.
This dip recipe tastes better if you it sit in the fridge overnight to give the flavors a chance to meld together. If that’s not possible, at least allow for an hour in the fridge before serving.
For the Love of Rosemary
This Garlicky Balsamic Dip has rosemary in it, which is part of the reason I was anxious to try it. I’ve been trying to eat more rosemary because a recent health podcast I was listening to touted the multiple health benefits of rosemary. Not only is rosemary a good source of antioxidants and an immune booster, it’s also great for digestion, hair and skin health, relaxation and it may even boost mental alertness. I need improvement in all of those things.
