This is the traditional recipe from Provence, but ingredients and flavors are added or changed all the times.

This recipe has a perfect balance of flavor, and you can add more extra-virgin olive oil if you want a smoother paste.

You can buy prepared Tapenade in a jar, but if you make it fresh you will taste the difference.

 

 

You can use green olives or add sun-dried tomatoes.

It is a perfect summer appetizer but there are many other ways you can serve it:

  • season a pasta,
  • as a spread for a sandwich,
  • to flavor and marinate meat.

    Absolutely delicious recipe and so versatile – I put this in pasta, on pizza, on toast, but sadly, I buy this ready made but I will definitely make my own now. My son really loves it. He will be so pleased to have his mummy’s made one now. 😉 Thank you for sharing this Laura.

      You are welcome, once you make it at home it is difficult to go back to the prepared one

    Love how versatile this is! I can imagine it’s lovely on a sandwich for that extra punch of savoury flavour! YUM!

    I adore black olives! I am not a huge fan of green olives, but love the black! I have never made a tapenade! It looks so easy! Great for a large gathering!

      It is Beth, and I must say Patty and I almost finished it all and the boys complaining as we used it in the video and didn’t share. I am definitely going to make it more often
