Fresh Herbs for Grilling and Bread Dipping

Fresh Herbs for Grilling and Bread Dipping

Organic Herbs for Bread Dip
Mixed Garden Herbs

Kitchen garden herbs are a delight to cook with. They make the best marinade for grilling. Season vegetables and salads with them. Blend them with olive oil and Balsam Vinegar to dip bread in.

The herbs are growing fast. I walked through the garden the other day, pinching off a good bit of each one to use for marinating chicken and steak for the grill. A thought, more like a picture, flashed through my mind. Herb, olive oil and Balsamic vinegar to dip bread in. Yum!

I didn’t have any certain recipe for the herb bread dip, but it didn’t take long to come up with one. The herbs smelled so good that I couldn’t resist trying a little of each to blend into the oil and Balsam vinegar. It actually turned out quite tasty. These are the herbs I used:

  • dill
  • rosemary
  • parsley
  • cilantro

Rinse, chop fine, put into a small dish. Add some finely chopped garlic cloves (optional) to the herbs. Pour the olive oil and Balsam vinegar over the herb mixture. Toast bread. Melt butter and spoon some butter onto the toast. Dip the toast – oooh lala!

It’s a quick and easy bread dipping recipe, and you can come up with your own version just by changing up the herbs. Make a large quantity and fill an oil dispenser.

Dipping hot bread into an olive oil and herb mixture is a delightful way to begin the first course of a meal. Of course, Italian cuisine comes to mind when deciding on the second course. Salad? Sounds good. Parmesan chicken and Fettucini would make a good choice for the main course. Should there be room for dessert, I’ll vote for mango cheesecake.
