Introduction

Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    2 oz black olives
    3 oz green olives
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    5 anchovy fillets, rinsed and mashed or 1 t anchovy paste
    2 T capers, rinsed
    1 t olive oil
    1/4 t black pepper, cracked
    1/2 lemon, juiced

Tips

Many of its ingredients (anchovies, capers and olives) can be high in sodium, so cut some salt by rinsing them. Instead of buying a tin of anchovies, look for anchovy paste in the Italian aisle of your supermarket. This recipe costs $3.10--just 19 cents per serving.


Directions

Chop olives and mince garlic. Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl. Keep in the refrigerator; bring to room temperature before serving. Makes 2 cups. (2 tablespoons per serving)

    I left out the anchovies and added some mushrooms. It was still very yummy. - 2/13/10

    Great mix of flavors! Try filling a chicken breast fillet with a tablespoon. First pound the fillets until thin, spread the tapenade on one side, roll the breasts and bake. Optional: baste while baking with lemon or white wine. Make it pretty by garnishing each with a red pepper strip. - 11/1/10

    tapenade is a staple for a really great muffaletta. good basic recipe. for the anchovy dislikers -- you don't taste "fish." they add depth. when you mash them up, they disappear into the mix. you do need to finely chop the other ingredients. - 9/27/12

    No Anchovy's or Capers for me. I stick with just olives, garlic and feta cheese. A must for parties. - 12/24/10
