A forgotten appetizer. That’s what this is. I have rarely seen this tasty treat online and it became a favorite of mine a few years ago. Olive tapenade is a great dip that has a little kick. Plus! It goes with just about any cracker you can think of. I’ve even used it as a spread on my sandwiches. I love it that much! You will be surprised at just how simple this is to make.
¼ CUP black olives drained well
¼ CUP green olives drained well
1 TBSP capers (optional)
2 cloves garlic
2 TBSP olive oil
1 TSP lemon juice
¼ TSP black pepper, or to taste
Combine all ingredients in food processor and make sure not to process too finely. Tapenade is NOT smooth.
If you do not have a food processor, finely mince the olives, capers (if using), and garlic. Combine with all the other ingredients. Mixing well.
