Sun-Dried Tomato Olive TapenadeMADE BY SUTTER BUTTES IN SUTTER, CALIFORNIA
Sun-dried tomatoes are, well, a little 1982. But this sun-dried tomato olive tapenade is so absurdly delicious, we could care less about trend. This oily (in the best possible way) spread is packed with candy-sweet sun-dried tomatoes, salty Kalamata olives and tons of garlic. We flipped out over this when it first hit the tasting table, and literally fought over the jar after it came out of the photo shoot.
Oh, California Cuisine, why did we stay away so long?

Embrace the '80s: Spoon this onto grilled shrimp or baked tilapia, mix it into hummus or use it to dress pasta salad with shredded chicken.
