If a person turns orange from eating too many carrots, can one turn purple from too many olives?
I could live off this stuff! Oh wait, I am.
2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 ½ cups pitted kalamata olives
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil from the kalamata olive jar or extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Mince garlic in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until olives are finely chopped. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
Tapenade Scooping Devices
Oooo I love carby scooping devices.
Any good quality French type bread, sliced
Turn grill to high. Lightly brush sliced bread on one side with olive oil. Place oil side down and grill until toasted. Move to a serving plate and top with luscious tapenade. Shovel into mouth before someone insists you share.
