Carrabba's Bread Dipping Mix

On a recent Italian dinner at home, I got ambitous while searching Pinterest for some inspiration and came across...a copycat recipe of Carrabba's Bread Dipping Mixture. Carrabba's is one restaurant we love and miss dearly as the closest one is likely hundreds of miles away!

I meticulously followed the directions from the recipe on Pinterest and the recipe was a huge hit! It really did taste like I was dipping bread while sitting at Carrabba's! I accompanied the dip (which is served with extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top), with a loaf of French Bread by Pillsbury. It is our favorite type of bread in the dairy fridge.
