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.

Grilled-Figs-7My parents used to have a hugely overgrown Black Mission Fig tree on their property. I was young and sometimes our young minds create big pictures in our little heads, but I felt as if the tree produced fruit all year long. I do know for a fact that it was taking over an entire portion of their yard – that images is a real-life-adult memory. During a yard re-model they decided to remove the tree. I was devastated.
