Capers are a fine “flowery” addition to your mains, sides, appetizers and anything in between. They are the unopened flower bud of the Capparis Spinosa shrub and are hugely popular in Traditional Mediterranean cuisines, especially Italian and Cypriot cuisines. Over at Mediterranean Living, we love their salty, briny goodness. We also love that capers are such an affordable addition to your favorite dishes. And, they are available in just about any grocery store. Food52 shares a few wonderful ways to include capers in your everyday foods, along with some great recipes.

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”
— Michael Little
“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
