Green Olive Tapenade

Updated: Mar 10, 2019


Going off eggs is definitely making me more creative with my recipes. I've been on the lookout for some new ways to eat fish and this one's a keeper!


I looooove olives. I've been on an olive kick for a few months now - ever since I came across Co-op's PURE Green Olives stuffed with Citrus. Finally some olives I can find locally without any weird additives.


This is a really simple recipe - the food processor does all the work and the tapenade packs a big flavor punch! It's a great pair for a mild fish like trout or chicken. I really enjoy it with cauli-rice, roasted veggies and fresh herbs. Feel free to add garlic if you tolerate it - that would be delicious!


Ingredients:

1/2 cup green olives (I used Co-op's PURE Green Olives stuffed with Citrus)

3 Tbsp capers (I used Amphora Organic Capers)

3 Tbsp olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

Pinch of salt


Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Enjoy!


Ways to use your Green Olive Tapenade:

  • Tonight I put mine on top of fried trout and served it with cauli-rice and fresh basil and cilantro.

  • Try it on top of grilled chicken and veggies!

  • Mix it with homemade mayo to use as an aioli or dip.

  • Thin it out with more olive oil and lemon juice to use as a salad dressing.

  • Mix it in a homemade hummus.
