Go FIGure (relish)

Typically a classic Italian caponata salad is made with eggplant and tomatoes with vinegar, olives and capers. To dazzle your taste buds try this fig based recipe for a very flavorful caponata-style relish that is the perfect accompaniment to a cheese or charcuterie board, or to grilled pork chops or sausage. Tiny red Peruvian peppers lend color and heat. Feel free to swap in another type of vinegar and to replace the capers with chopped green olives.
