Tapenade is an olive paste usually served over some crostini bread or bruschette. It is a mix of black olives, anchovies, garlic, capers, thyme, lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil.
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.
