Olive Oil Dip for Italian Bread
A fun addition of pine nuts makes this dip tastes great with French bread and makes a good salad dressing, too!
Dovetailing Tip: With the saved bread from Meal 2, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the bread, cheese side up, on a baking sheet. Heat for 8-10 minutes, until hot and toasty. Use the bread for dipping in the olive oil.
