Tapenade is a top favorite here. It's perfect on a slice of toasted French Baguette, or pita bread. It is also fairly healthy, due to its mediterranean ingredients. If you are unfamiliar to this delicious spread, Tapenade is a Provençal dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. You can find it as a starter in many Mediterranean restaurants. Enjoy!

Servings: 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 pound pitted mixed olives
  • anchovy fillets, rinsed
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 to 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Thoroughly rinse the olives in cool water. Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process to combine, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until the mixture becomes a coarse paste, approximately 1 to 2 minutes total. Transfer to a bowl and serve with slices of French Baguette or Sourdough
