1 large garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, more for garnish

12 squash blossoms

1 piece burrata or buffalo mozzarella

Coarse sea salt.


1. In a food processor, combine olives, anchovy, garlic, rosemary and lemon zest. Using the pulse button, process until coarsely chopped and well blended. Continue to process, slowly adding 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
