Delicious Black Olive Tapenade

August 7, 2011

Olive tapenade is a versatile condiment that adds a rich flavor to whatever it's paired with.  Tapenade is quick and easy to make, especially if you have the aid of a food processor.  You can serve tapenade as a spread for pizza, burgers, or sandwiches.  Place it on top of cooked fish or chicken for a gourmet touch.  I like to eat it simply spread on a nice piece of crusty bread. 

Olive Tapenade

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon capers, drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 anchovy fillets
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

This looks great! It will go perfect with the home-made focaccia I'm going to make later today. Thanks for the recipe.
