This sweet and savory tapenade from Sutter Buttes combines two California classics: Mission figs and olives. Combined simply with a splash of balsamic vinegar and a touch of sugar, Sutter Buttes' Fig & Olive Spread hits on all notes—rich and briny from the olives with a caramelized sweetness from the figs and a tangy, vinegary bite. Its rustic, yet spoonable texture makes it ideal for dipping, spreading and using as an ingredient in the kitchen.
How to use
This California-made spread is figtastic paired with cheese. For an easy appetizer, slather crostini with fresh goat cheese and top each with a dollop of tapenade. Or use it in a classic brie en croute (baked puff pastry-wrapped brie). Sutter Buttes' Fig & Olive Tapenade also makes a wonderful addition to a grilled cheese sandwich.
