Green & Black Olive Tapenade

I think I’ve told you about my adoration for olives.  I just love the saltiness.  They make a great snack, topping for pizza and tacos, and they make an excellent dip when they are pureed up with garlic and capers and lemon juice.

I’m pretty sure you know about my adoration for my fellow foodies too.  So when my friend Kim asked me to guest post for her, I was more than willing to jump on board.  If you have never visited Cravings of a Lunatic, you should, not only for this recipe, but for Kim’s antics, humor an her sweet personality.  You will adore her!

    I’m fairly certain I could subsist on green olives alone. Love this tapenade!

    Must do it…must make homemade tapenade! Your recipe looks awesome and my step dad is obsessed with all things olive and bruschetta related, so next time I’m over for dinner, I will be sure to bring your recipe with me. By the way, I’ve been meaning to tell you thanks for the veggie broth recipe – I can’t tell you how much veggie broth I buy from the store when I could just do it at home. Awesome!

    Tapenade always reminds me of summers in the south of france, this is like a ray of sunshine!

    I am an olive freak (funny because I didn’t like them until I hit my 30′s). This looks so yummy. :)

    Oh Cassie….I just left a comment over at Kim’s! This tapenade looks sensational! I just love they briny, saltiness of olives and eat them like popcorn! But this tapenade…on crackers or a slice of crusty baguette….would be heaven! BEAUTIFUL photos!

    The tampenade looks wonderful. Are the black olives Kalamatas or the non-salty ones?
