Olive Tapenade


This is one of my favorite entertaining recipes. Bring it to a Christmas party or offer it as an hors d’oeuvre for at home. I learned this recipe from a friend a while ago and adjust it a bit every time. It’s the easiest, yummiest thing!

Olive Tapenade

1 14oz. can artichokes

1 large garlic cloves

1 tablespoon capers

1 1/2 cups kalamata olives (pitted)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processer and pulse until finely chopped (but not pureed!), it should look a little chunky, but you can always adjust it to your preference.

Enjoy with crostini (sliced baguette brushed with olive oil and baked until almost crisp), rice crackers….almost anything!
