Like most things in life, tapenade from a jar doesn’t even come close to that of home made tapenade. And considering that from prep to clean up it takes less than 5 minutes to make, there really are no excuses to even buy it. I don’t judge though 😉
Creamy goat cheese is my favorite accompianment to the salty olive tapenade. But it also brings wonderful flavor to sandwiches or water crackers.
Tapenade – makes about 1 1/2 cups
- 2 cups olives from olive bar (I use mostly kalamata with green olives and some roasted garlic)
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
Place olives and olive oil in a food processor. Pulse until it reaches desired consistency. I like to keep mine a little chunky.
Serve with crackers, bread slices, on sandwiches, with hummus, etc.
