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.
Just break off pieces of warm crusty bread and dip the pieces into this wonderful olive dipping sauce! Give the bread a few seconds to soak up the sauce – and then enjoy!
This olive dipping sauce is so simple – but so good! And it’s the perfect way to begin any Italian-inspired meal!Print
