Hello Slow Foodies!

In honor of the season, we're reaching out to our Slow Food Community for some fun and festive holiday recipes. We'll be posting the recipes on our site from now until New Year. Our hope is to give you some ideas as you head out to potlucks and parties in the next two weeks.

Our first recipe is an elegantly simple appetizer posted to our Facebook Page by the owner of Mindful Meals, Chef Emily Golden:


  • 10 dried figs, stems removed
  • 1 cup of pitted black olives, your choice(not pizza olives!)
  • Juice of half lemon
  • 2 tsp. good balsamic
  • 1 tsp-1 Tbsp capers(your preference)
  • Leaves from one stem rosemary
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme
  • Cracked black pepper (to taste)

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until the figs are very small and you have a spreadable product. Serve on fresh slices of baguette and top with a small amout of good quality feta or goat cheese.

Blogger's Notes:

We use the word "good" a lot as a descriptor here. As always, the quality of your food is largely based on the quality of the ingredients. No one is saying to break the bank, but there is noticeable flavor difference between a something like salad balsamic and a good aged balsamic. It's the holidays. If you can, treat yourself and treat the ones you love.

If you're feeling extra sassy, you can even make your own fresh baguette! Bread Flour is recommended for this recipe but all-purpose is just fine
