Olive Tapenade

I have shared I watch a lot of the Food Network, and I really enjoy The Kitchen.  They shared a really simple recipe for an olive spread that I thought I would try (especially since I had everything in the pantry or fridge-bonus).Olives, both green and Kalamata, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. About a cup of both olives, drained.Three cloves of garlic.Oh, oregano–a generous amount of oregano, lemon juice as well (I didn’t put in a lot). Put all into a blender or food processor.  Add enough olive oil to keep it creamy.  I started with about 1 tablespoon, and ended up added another 2 teaspoons.You can use this on fish, chicken, or as a spread on toast or crackers.  Super yummy.  And, yes, you will need to add just a bit of salt.  I doubted it at first, and then ended up adding it in later.

Enjoy.
