Tapenade – Yum! #shurfinebrand #target #CostcoTweets

10 Jun

Tapenade is a French creation.  I usually buy my tapenade at Trader Joe’s.  But I decided to start making it mysef.  It seemed like it would be easy to make.

1/3 cup banana peppers

1 cup kalamata olives

1 cup Spanish olives

1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil

tapenade 2_8562 blogBlend the banana peppers, kalamata and Spanish olives separately in a food processor to the consistency you like.  You might want it super blended or still chunky.

Use the Tapenade as a dip with crackers or spread over crusty French bread.

Good appetizer on a Sunday night with a martini!
