      I made this for a BBQ and it was a big hit. I left out the capers and used black olives, and didn't bother to toast the walnuts. I also used fig paste from the local international grocery that was thinned with some water in the food processor. I think the flavor got better as it sat out for a few hours. I goes great with the really mild goat cheese. I will definitely be making this again!
