Olive Dipping Sauce

Olive Dipping Sauce - A simple but super flavorful way to begin any Italian-inspired meal! Serve with warm, crusty Italian bread and soak up this amazing sauce!

This Olive Dipping Sauce is another easy – but super flavorful – recipe that uses five ingredients or less.  This is our attempt to recreate at home, an olive dipping sauce served at one of our favorite restaurants on Cape Cod called Tomatoes Italian Grille and Bar in Sandwich, Massachusetts.

Whenever we dine at Tomatoes, we look forward to starting our meal with a Roman Wedge Salad and some freshly baked Italian bread served alongside this terrific olive dipping sauce!  It’s a simple blend of finely chopped Kalamata olives, a really good extra virgin olive oil, grated Parmesan Reggiano, a pinch of red pepper flakes, as well as salt and pepper.

  1. I love this super simple recipe! I LOVE dipping fresh bread into that olive oil and balsamic mix you always get at restaurants – the only thing I can think of that sounds even better is olives with olive oil!! Must try this! 🙂

  2. I had something like this at a restaurant some time ago, it was sooo good! I had completely forgotten about it until I saw your post. Such a great idea, I will have to try making it!
