Green Olive Tapenade

With family and friends dropping in this time of year, it’s helpful to have a simple recipe you can make quickly and with pantry ingredients. Green Olive Tapenade fits the bill. You can switch up the ingredients based on which olives you have at home, adding in different herbs depending on the season. It’s a versatile spread for crackers, stuffing fish or stirring into warm pasta.

Sometimes it’s the simple things that we enjoy the most.
