Olive Tapenade

Looking for something different to please your palate? Olive tapenade is a hit at our house - it's fast, easy, and yummy! :-))


20 pitted black olives, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp. rinsed, drained, & chopped capers
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. olive oil
1 clove of garlic (or 1 tsp. minced garlic)
cracked black pepper (I add a little initially, husband adds more to his portion)

(some recipes for this call for 1/2 tsp. anchovy paste - we're not a fan, so we omit)

Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate before serving.

Excellent as a dip with corn scoops!



  1. Hi, Jan. I'm not a fan of olives, but my husband loves them. I'll have to try this for him. Maybe for V-day. :)

    1. Thanks, Dawn :-)) Just edited the recipe - I realized a bit late that it should also have 1 clove of garlic (or 1 tsp minced garlic). We had it with our supper tonight & it was yummy!

      Thanks for visiting & commenting!!

      Have a great weekend,Dawn!

  2. Hi Jan- I crave olives. This sounds yummy.

    1. Hi Gayle,

      Thanks for visiting my blog & for leaving a comment! I just edited the recipe. I forgot to add 1 clove of garlic (or 1 tsp. of minced garlic). It really is a great recipe for olive lovers. :-))

      Have a good weekend!
