Sun-Dried Tomato Spread is a classic Italian treat and can be used on a piece of bruschetta or toasted bread, as a condiment for a sandwich with prosciutto cotto and provola, and even spooned into a sauce for added flavor.  Our version is made with, among other ingredients, homemade olive oil cured sun dried tomatoes, parsley, and red pepper flakes.

A spread that can be used on bread, sandwiches, crostini, sauces, etc.
Cook:
Serves: 10-12
Ingredients
  • 1 pound of sun-dried tomatoes (cured in olive oil, if possible)
  • 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of dry oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 4-5 mint leaves
  • Kosher salt to taste (note: if you're using sun dried tomatoes that have been cured in olive oil then be conservative with the salt)
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • dry red pepper flakes
Process
  1. Place the garlic and red pepper flakes into the food processor and pulse until the garlic is minced. Add the parsley and mint and pulse for 1-2 minutes. Add the sun dried tomatoes and pulse for 2-3 minutes. Slowly drizzle the extra virgin olive oil into the food processor. Add the salt, vinegar, oregano and ground black pepper and pulse for 1-2 minutes.
  2. You can process the mixture as finely as you'd like given your preference, we like to pulse the ingredient very fine to create a "sauce" of sorts.

We like our spread pulsed very finely - you can leave your end product a bit more chunky if you'd like.
