This recipe for Olive Tapenade is the triple threat of appetizers as it's fast, cheap, and tasty.
Step 1: What You'll Need
Keep these on hand in your pantry and you'll always be ready to whip this up in no time!
- Food processor
- Can opener
- 2 cans of black pitted olives
- 1 jar of green manzanilla pitted olives
- 1/2 jar of roasted red peppers
- 1 tbsp of capers (optional)
- Wheat thins (or your cracker of preference)
Step 2: Straining the Ingredients
Open your cans with your can opener. Pour your olives and peppers into a strainer that you set down in the sink. Strain the ingredients by shaking the strainer slightly.
Step 3: Out Comes the Food Processor
Pour half of your olive and pepper mix into the food processor. Chop that up first. I prefer to press pulse to get it going and then hold it down. Pour the remaining mix into the food processor and finish it up.
The tapenade should be a little chunky, you do not want an olive puree.
Step 4: Final Product
Now you have your quick and simple dish!
