RECIPE BACKSTORY
Recipe from Bobby Flay For the Flavors of the Mediterranean Cooking Class -111 We served this tapenade on a tomato-mozzarella salad, but it's worthy of standing on it's own. Serve it with a baguette or as a topping on grilled fish or chicken. Even thought it's pure Bobby Flay genius, it reeks of the Mediterranean. Love ya Bobby, call me, mean it!
