  • Garlic Powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Oregano: 1 tablespoon
  • Rosemary: 1 tablespoon
  • Parsley: 1 tablespoon
  • Basil: 1 tablespoon
  • Crushed Red Pepper: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon
  • Pepper: ½ teaspoon

How to Make Instructions

  1. Combine the Ingredients: In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, oregano, rosemary, parsley, basil, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper.
  2. Storing for Later Use: Transfer the spice blend to an airtight container. This will keep your spices fresh and ready for instant use whenever the mood strikes.
  3. Preparing the Dip: When ready to serve, simply sprinkle a generous amount of the spice blend into a shallow bowl. Pour over it a good glug of your favorite olive oil. Stir slightly to incorporate the spices throughout the oil.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Place the bowl on the table surrounded by slices of freshly baked or warm crusty bread for dipping.

Helpful Tips

  • Fresh vs. Dry: While I’ve used dry herbs for convenience, fresh herbs finely chopped can elevate the flavors even more. If using fresh, triple the quantity specified for each herb.
  • Quality Matters: Opt for high-quality extra virgin olive oil as it’s the base of your dip and will significantly influence the taste.


  • Spice It Up: For those who enjoy a spicier kick, add an extra teaspoon of crushed red pepper.
  • Citrus Twist: Add grated lemon zest for a fresh, citrusy note that lightens the dip’s robust flavors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I make this spice blend in bulk? A: Absolutely! Just multiply the ingredients based on how much you’d like to make and store it in an airtight container. It makes a wonderful homemade gift too!

Q: How long will the spice blend last? A: Stored in a cool, dry place, the blend should last for up to 6 months.

Storage Instructions

Keep your spice blend in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Avoid humidity and heat as they can cause the spices to lose their potency and flavor more quickly.
