Default The yummy dipping oil for bread at Zio's!

Anyone know how to re-create this at home? Hubby and I love it, but I'm not sure which herbs/ingredients they use with their olive oil. Any suggestions?

I bought some of the garlic crisps at HEB, I think--or maybe my mom sent them from Trader Joe's--but then I sprinkled in some oregano and basil. You could probably experiment with different herbs until you get the mix you like best. (I'm almost positive I got them at HEB.)

I have a great recipe that I got from the recipe swap on TexasMonthly.com. I will send you a DM with it.

I would just add oregano and garlic to olive oil. That's how I eat it.


Bravo Cucina Italiano at La Cantera has very good olive oil dip.
I've never been to Zio's.

Thanks Sapphire....I also have some of that same product....from HEB. I had been using it in some olive oil with some "italian seasoning" (McCormick, I think) which just has a bunch of different stuff in it, but the flavor was still just a little too bright for me. (Don't know if that makes sense or not, but maybe some of you will know what I mean.)
