We discovered this combination of flavors a couple weeks ago and have since devoured two large batches of it. Salty olives. Sweet figs. Creamy cheese. The garlic. The garlic. Just writing the word garlic makes my mouth water. A special thank you to the cayenne for a subtly spicy finish. I am in love, I tell you.
We’ve found the best results when using fresh herbs and chilling the olive mixture overnight or at least for a few hours to allow the flavors mingle a little.
