I love salty things. Maybe it is more of the brine I love but I can’t resist olives of any type. Capers? Forget it. I can pop those salty bits of goodness in my mouth for no reason at all.
The question should be, how can you not. I love whipping up a batch and keeping it in my fridge on stand-by. It lasts awhile and can be used in many ways. Some of my favorites are on a cheese and charcuterie board, on a sandwich to kick it up a notch, a piece of grilled bread with some parmesan curls or a dollop on top of a Feta Omelette. Put some on a baguette with proscuitto and fresh mozzarella and basil leaves. Incredible. I have taken chicken breasts, cut a decent size slit in the side and put tapenade and herbed cream cheese and seared it. That reminds me, i need to write that recipe up and test it out for the cookbook.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and I hope you do too. Bon Appetit!
