Southern Living


1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 cup dried tomatoes
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
French baguette slices


Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and tomatoes are plump.

Process tomato mixture, olives, and next 5 ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Serve with French baguette slices.
