Last week I had a meeting at Chase Lounge in Santa Barbara. It was my first visit and I was starving. Luckily the Owner knew it was my first time and ordered everything for me from the time I sat down. First was variety of breads and a side of their special Italian garlic dip. If you like garlic, you will love this dip. You will also want to try their lemon caper chicken, Fettuccini alfredo, ceasar salad, and chocolate cake. Of course, you will need wine, so luckily they have JUSTIN on the wine list. This recipe is quick and easy to make and delicious.
10 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ teaspoon of crushed red peppers
1 tablespoon of finely shredded Mozzarella cheese
Remove skin from garlic cloves and put them in a food processor, blend until finely chopped
Pour in olive oil and blend a little more
Put garlic dip in a bowl and sprinkle the red peppers and then top it off with finely shredded mozzarella cheese
Serve with your favorite Italian bread
