Making bruschetta is pretty self-explanatory. So I’m going to show you how to make your very own olive oil dressing to drizzle over it instead. It’s as simple as it is delicious. And it includes one of my favorite words: peppercorn. (Not made from corn.)


  • A sprig of basil
  • Olive oil
  • Peppercorn
  • Erlenmeyer flask

Step 1

Chop up your sprig of basil (removing the stem) and add it to a bowl.

Step 2

Pour olive oil in the bowl and let it soak.

Step 3

Add a handful of peppercorn (or cloves) to spice it up.

Step 4

Then stir it up and let it sit for a day or two.

Step 5

Pour it into an Erlenmeyer flask and use it at your next party.

Step 6

Google “Erlenmeyer flask”.
