Drizzle on something different with this creamy concoction, made from silky-smooth olive oil, fresh lemon juice, zesty Dijon mustard and a creative, zippy addition: capers. Not a veggie, not a fruit, capers are actually tiny, unopened flower buds from a prickly bush found in Mediterranean countries. Pickled, they’re naturally salty””so you won’t need to sprinkle on any extra!

Flavorful capers are an easy way to enhance taste without adding extra salt. Click to buy now.
