Carrabba’s Copycat Italian Herb Dip – The Hurried Hostess

When my husband and I were dating (a million years ago), one of our favorite places to go was Carrabba’s. But it never failed, we would order our food and then they would bring out that warm crusty bread with that mouth watering herb dip with oil and we would stuff ourselves full – and the actual meals we ordered were enjoyed the next day as leftovers.

I cannot be trusted around the bread and olive oil herb dip at Carrabba’s.

The hostess seats you at your table, and then it happens…the bread and olive oil herb dip is placed down in front of you. Suddenly, there’s arms flying all over the table tearing open the parchment paper and watching the steam emerge from the hot sliced bread.

It’s truly a delicious sight to behold. But you can’t just sit there and look at it in our family – oh no. This is time for action. Because if you don’t try to get a piece of that deliciousness when it’s first put in front of you, you’re not likely to get anyone at all.

I love the Italian herb dip. My husband loves the herb dip. My kids love the herb dip.

So after all of those dinners spend at Carrabba’s eating that delicious bread and olive oil herb dip, I decided to make it for myself at home.

Word of warning – it has a ton of ingredients. But…it’s an “everybody in the pool” kind of recipe. Meaning, you just dump it all in and stir it on up.

It’s such a simple herb dip recipe to make that’s perfect with any kind of bread you like – although my person favorite is a French bread or something crusty like that.

Let’s get started…

What is it about this dip that is so inviting? Or is it the loaf of bread served with it? Anyways, I’ve got the perfect copycat recipe of that same Italian herb and oil dip that’s perfect for dunking and will leave you wanting to soak up every last drop!
