This classic Italian olive oil dip is great to serve with a mixture of raw and grilled vegetables, grilled bread, or you can drizzle it over steak.


  • 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp finely chopped anchovies
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 3⁄4 cup olive oil

Make Dip

  1. In small pot over low heat, melt butter. Add garlic and sauté for 8 minutes, or until soft and fragrant but hasn’t taken on any color.
  2. Add anchovies, mashing with spoon to break up. Add thyme and olive oil, and cook on low for 2 minutes, or until anchovies have mostly dissolved and mixture is very flavorful. Serve warm with steak, and grilled and raw vegetables.
