made with Kalamata Olives

Kalamata Olive Tapenade Appetizers are gourmet canape without the fuss. Try pairing with a glass of Chardonnay for a real treat. Very easy to make and your guests will love it.


1 cup pitted olives coarse chopped
1/4 fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
1 clove garlic, fresh or roasted
1/3 cup fine chopped white onion
1 Tbl Pesto or some chopped fresh basil
1 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbl olive oil

Mix all ingredients and serve on
crusty baguette slices, toasts or crackers.

This is a very easy and quick recipe. With a little more fuss, try adding roasted garlic and bell peppers to the mix. You will come up with a very interesting and delicious flavor.

Time saver!

Put first 5 ingredients in mini food chopper and coarse chop. If you prefer a paste, blend in food chopper longer until you reach your desired consistency. I prefer it coarse like my picture.
