3-Ingredient Mediterranean Dip

3-Ingredient Mediterranean Caviar | figsandfeta.comA few weeks ago my husband and I hosted a dinner-pool party for a handful of families. Preparing meze, pitas, souvlaki and sweets for days before, I was pleasantly surprised when one guest walked in with a very Mediterranean looking appetizer: what I’m calling the 3-Ingredient Mediterranean Dip. One taste and I was hooked.
