SAUCES AND SPREADS: Olive Tapenade

I LIVE on Trader Joe’s olive tapenade. I eat it by itself, or on just about anything. Challah, potato chips, crackers etc. I may or may not go through an entire container a week.

This weekend, we ran out of the TJ’s olive tapenade. I know…THE HORROR! I didn’t know what to do…until I realized that I could make some of my own! I had all of the ingredients in my cupboard. This recipe is ridiculously easy, and the results were delicious. I don’t think I will be needing to pick up the TJ’s olive tapenade for a while…

PS. Isn’t this Olive You Bowl super cute?!

    Yummmm!!! This looks so delicious- thanks for sharing, my fiance is a major fan of olives (as in he will literally eat an entire can in one sitting ha!) I’ll have to make this for him!
