Hot Pesto Dippin’ Stuff

Great for dipping Italian breads. Fast to make. Garlicky, salty. Bring on the Chianti.

The recipe:
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp basil
1 tsp kosher salt
3-4 Tbl Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat the olive oil in a small/medium frying pan over medium heat. Toss in the garlic. Let it simmer for a few seconds. Add the salt and basil. Stir and simmer until the garlic shows a hint of browning. This will all happen pretty quick. Take it off the heat and pour it in a plate. Let it cool a little, but serve it hot. Sop it up with bread.
