Ingredients of Italian Bread Dipping Oil Spices Mix

Here are the dried herbs and spices contained in the seasonings of the Italian restaurant dipping oil recipe.

  • Rosemary
  • Red Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Parsley Flakes
  • Garlic Powder
  • Thyme
  • Basil

Regard alternative options, you can use red pepper flakes instead of the ground red cayenne pepper if desired. Also, if you’re not storing this dry mix, and are going to use it soon without refrigeration, you can substitute fresh garlic (granulated) for the garlic powder but you should use twice the amount of granulated garlic.

You can also add in some parmesan cheese if you choose but, again, only if you’re readying to serve it right away.

Regarding the lemon juice, some will use vinegar instead, which is fine. Some prefer to use balsamic vinegar but some may find it too strong of a type of vinegar for this type of recipe.

The best Olive oil is going to be Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), which is cold pressed. To read more about the best oil to use for dipping breads, check out the experts at
