Hello! We are absolutely thrilled to be here today! I am Lisa and I blog at Over the Big Moon with my awesome partner and friend Pam. Our blog is a little bit of everything that has to do with the family, motherhood, and anything related to our homes. We feel passionatly about making a home and enriching our families and love to offer free printables, fun family traditions, decor ideas, recipes, and anything else that might help women and their families!
Today we want to share a simple and delicious spice mix.
It is great for sprinkling over olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip bread in. It also makes a great gift for a friend or new neighbor!
The first thing you need to do break some of the spice down in size. The more even the sizes of the spices the more evenly it will mix and stay mixed. I put the larger spices (rosemary, dehydrated garlic, red pepper, onion) in a Ziploc bag and then roll over it with my rolling pin until I smash them down in size.
After you have the big seasonings broken down, mix them with the other spices and mix well.
To create an olive oil dip pour a thin layer of olive oil in a flat dish and drizzle balsamic vinegar through the oil. Then sprinkle a layer of the spices over the top.
My favorite bread for dipping is this amazing and super simple sourdough.
When I moved to Seattle I used to go to a restaurant with my Grandma Irene called Ciao Bella. We loved to sit and dip our bread in their delicious oils and vinegar. When she passed away we went there after her funeral and I bought a little Italian soda that day. For the last 14 years I have kept my Italian bread dip seasonings in this little bottle. It brings back good memories!
Delicious Spice Mix
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- ½ – 1 tsp black pepper depending on how much spice you want
- 2 teaspoons crushed red
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 tablespoon. dehydrated onion
- ½ tablespoon dehydrated garlic I found the dehydrated garlic in the spice section of my local store. It makes a huge difference and is worth looking for!
- The first thing you need to do break some of the spice down in size. The more even the sizes of the spices the more evenly it will mix and stay mixed. I put the larger spices (rosemary, dehydrated garlic, red pepper, onion) in a Ziploc bag and then roll over it with my rolling pin until I smash them down in size.

But, if you don’t have a super sentimental Italian soda container laying around, this recipe will also fill one half pint jar. I made a cute printable jar topper that you can print for the top of your jars. It makes a great Christmas neighbor gift or housewarming gift.
