A Little-Known Ingredient Can Replace Olives In Any Situation
By Sarah Richter
If you’re cooking for someone who dislikes olives, there's a unique ingredient you can swap them for that is quite similar: caperberries.
Caperberries are what you get when capers are allowed to fully grow, and they’re fruity, briny, and a little salty, making them a perfect substitute for olives.
Caperberries and their brine are delicious in a martini for those who dislike that olive flavor, and they also make the perfect garnish for a savory Bloody Mary.
They are also adaptable enough to be used in recipes that commonly call for capers, like pesto, a savory raw sauce for tuna steaks, or your favorite caper chicken dish.
