I don't know how close to the real thing this copy-cat recipe is - but you might look and see if it sounds close to what you had:

Carrabba's Herb Oil for Dipping Bread Copy-Cat Recipe

Read down the comments - one person claims they used to work at Carrabba and that the oil also contains anchovies.

I haven't eaten there in so long I can't remember what it tasted like.

You could warm the olive oil up with some sage in it. I do this with butter for a sage butter dipping sauce. It's very easy to tell when the flavor is fully incorporated, the smell fills up the whole house :)

I agree that a good evoo is meant to be tasted uncooked, but not everyone can splurge on a great bottle of evoo, so this might be a good alternative.
