A traditional recipe & gives leeway for variationsMay 20, 2011 By glib_trotter
This is a great reference recipe for traditional ""pasta de aceitunas"", and offers the adventurous a substantial leeway to create variations. I like to smoke-roast 1/2 inch thick slices of eggplant. After approximately 20 minute on a bbq grill with added smoke from pre-wetted apple or mesquite chips, I cool it and dice the slices into half inch cubes to toss in olive mix. Fantastico on crusty baguette slices or organic tortilla chips. I have also used this recipe to which I add a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and use the blend as a salad dressing for a chopped Italian salad. It can be a base layer in bruschetta before adding a tomato topping or just a slice of anchovy. Let your creativity run with his one.

black olive tapenadeJuly 19, 2008 By faceart76
I needed this recipe to complete my MUFA diet, but I have a medical condition, so I can't have salty foods, like anchovies, acids like lemons and vinegar(capers) I created a recipe with black olives and added two more items from the MUFA list Short and simple: 1 small can sliced black olives 1 to 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil handfull of Cashews put into blender. Use as dip or spread according to how much olive oil you use. Maybe add a clove of garlic, haven't tried that yet but it sounds good.

Just a little moreJune 08, 2008 By DrBehavior
I added about a cup of fresh flat leaf parsley and believe it or not it makes a wonderful difference. Also, add 2 anchovies and to make it 'elegant', pat dry the anchovy fillets on paper towel and cut them up prior to putting them in the food processor.

Tasty Tapenade!March 29, 2008 By ganeshgirl
One night I desperately needed olive tapenade (strange, but true). My local store did not carry it - so I looked up an easy recipe online & found this one! I'm not a cook - and I don't own a food processor or anything... I was able to make this recipe with a knife and cutting board. There's not a lot of ingredients and it's very simple to make... it's also really good. The first time I made it I actually didn't have kalamata olives - so I used green olives, and I have to say it was just as tasty! I gave it 4 stars only because I added some minced garlic to it. If you need a good, simple, quick olive tapenade recipe - try this one!
