Sun-Dried Tomato & Olive Tapenade is simply divine with its tangy and full-bodied flavor. The tomatoes are slow-dried in the sun and blended with just the right amount of herbs. We then add crushed Kalamata Olives to create this intensely deep flavored tapenade. Use as a pesto and stir into a bowl of warm pasta. Spread on sandwiches, pita bread, and warm-toasted crusty breads. Use to season fish and chicken before grilling or baking. Use as a topping for pizza and focaccia. Mix with ricotta or cream cheese to create a delicious dip. A creative, world-class taste has blossomed in the agricultural heartland of Northern California.
