We've included this recipe in our repertoire because it's more of a serving suggestion than a recipe. At MorningStar Kitchen we always have a number of "go to" ingredients on hand that help us create something special to eat on a moment's notice - something that sets our meals apart. This is one of those idea. We almost alway have Spanish Olive Tapenade on hand to serve with crostini as an appetizer or to turn into a quick sauce or aioli for sandwiches, burgers, etc. We especially love the way it works with salami and provolone cheese on these sandwiches, and we think you will love it too. PS: We love the peppery flavor of these sandwiches that you get with the use of both green and Tellicherry peppercorns. Used together, they give the sandwich that extra "Wow!"


Mix the Spanish Olive Tapenade with mayonnaise then let refrigerate for 30 minutes. Spread  the Spanish Olive Aioli over ciabatta halves.


Top bottom half of loaf with salami, roasted red peppers (if using), provolone, arugula and pepper. Sprinkle with Vanilla Salt and cap with top half of loaf.

Green Peppercorns
Green peppercorns are
harvested from the
pepper vine before the
berries have reached their full maturity, resulting in a zestier flavor than that of black or white peppercorns. Chefs use them when they are seeking a lighter, cleaner, and fresher taste from their pepper.

Vanilla Bean
Sea Salt

Sweet, yet salty, our

Vanilla Bean Sea Salt

makes a rich and flavorful addition to both sweet and savory dishes. Try a little on chicken, vegetables, or salads. Use it as a finishing salt to create an extra layer of flavor in breads, pastries – even cocktails!

No Home Chef's kitchen
is complete without
Tellicherry peppercorns, which are considered the finest pepper in the world. Left on the vine longer than other black peppercorns, these berries are given time to develop their complex, robust flavor to develop more fully.
