Tarragon is popular in French cuisine as it is one of the fines herbes; the four herbs that make up the main stay of French cuisine. This aromatic herb that gives off hints of licorice balances beautifully with the tomato and garlic. Not only is this wonderful as an oil flavoring but also as a salad dressing! Let these flavors transport you to coastal France.
To make your own exceptional olive oil seasoning dip, mix 3 tablespoons French Riviera Dipping Seasoning with 1/2 cup of your favorite olive oil. You can absolutely adjust this with more or less seasoning to suite the tastes of your friends and family. Once mixed we like to let it set for about 30 minutes prior to using as that allows the seasonings to fully marry with the olive oil.
You can also use this seasoning for a zippy vinegar and oil dressing for salads by mixing 3 tablespoons of French Riviera Dipping Seasoning with 2/3 cups olive oil and 1/3 cup red wine vinegar (we feel that balsamic vinegar overwhelms the seasoning when used in this manner). You can also use this dressing as a simple, light marinade for chicken, fish or pork. Marinate chicken or pork for 2-4 hours and fish 30 minutes prior to cooking.
The flavor profile of our salt free the French Riviera Dipping Seasoning is garlicky with subtle tomato flavor and hints of tarragon.
Hand blended from onion, tomato, garlic, black pepper, tarragon and basil.
