I don't take pictures of food very often because I think it is hard to find the right angle so something delicious doesn't look disgusting... but I found one for today's theme: this is a particular food favorite of mine (I don't have a sweet tooth!) pictured at a small restaurant while we were traveling in july: quiche and salad, with a tasty mustard salad sauce, French style (1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 tbsp vinager, 1 tsp mustard, salt and pepper) Next to the fork on the plate: green tapenade, a rich olive spread popular in the Mediterranean, made out of green olives. Here is a recipe using black olives:

20 pitted Kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp rinsed, drained, and chopped capers
1 tsp fresh lemon juice ,2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp anchovy paste (optional)
Fresh cracked black pepper

Combine Kalamata olives, capers, lemon juice, olive oil, anchovy paste, and pepper.
Mix well. Refrigerate and use within two weeks.

And now that I am very hungry I'll leave you with my red composition, I already used this pic for an earlier post, but I'd like to share it again since it took a lot of creativity from my side , let me tell you!!
