The Forgotten Appetizer – Olive Tapenade

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.

OLIVE TAPENADE20883512_10154540063660670_1160905706_o

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.
