Since I was a little girl I have had a serious addiction to cheese and olives. To this day nothing gets me more excited. Hand me a plate with cheese and signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours. One of my favorite appetizers is fig & olive tapenade. The combination of sweet, savory, and tangy is out of control. Throw it on bread, on a salad, or as a topping for cream cheese and crackers. The possibilities are endless. We fig-ured we would share our version with you. You can thank us later.
