FOR THE DIPPING OIL: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, oregano, basil, rosemary, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste.
Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
Pour the oil in a shallow dish and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top. Serve right away with artisan bread.
For the CHARCUTERIE BOARD, prepare a large platter, placing the bowl of dipping oil in the center. Arrange the bread chunks around the oil, filling in the spaces with 3 small bowls (tomatoes, mozzarella balls, olives).
Prepare the stuffed butternut endive and roasted carrots in the oven (20 minutes).
Arrange the endive and roasted carrots, along with salami, cheese, and sliced apples and pears.
Serve and enjoy!
To prepare a charcuterie board, if not food safe, lay down parchment paper before placing the food on the board. Or, you can season the board by lightly sanding, cleaning, and rubbing with beeswax and mineral oil. HAVE FUN!
