  • ½ cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves


  1. Chop and mix the rosemary, thyme and garlic. Sprinkle the salt on the herbs and use the side of your chef knife to mash into a chunky paste.
  2. Place herb mixture and olive oil into a small sauce pan and warm over low heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and sizzling (10–15 minutes).
  3. Allow to cool slightly; best served warm. Serve with crudite (assorted raw vegetables for dipping), such as carrots, bell peppers, turnips, pea pods, radishes, kohlrabi and cucumber or use as a dip for bread. Also excellent as a salad dressing, popcorn topping or brushed on homemade pizza crust. Store leftovers in the refrigerator and use within 2 days.
