Delicious! I used the food processor and don't even want to think about how long it would have taken me if I had chopped and minced everything by hand. I used 7.5 garlic cloves. I could have eaten it all with a spoon it was so good, but my husband said it was "way too salty." He doesn't eat salt, so I'm sure it seemed saltier to him than it would to most. I even rinsed the olives and anchovy under lots of water first to wash off as much salt as possible. I thought it was great!

This was my first time making tapenade... couldn't be easier! My husband loves it and he liked this one better than the store-bought versions, which is all he ever had before. Since I never use anchovies, I bought a tube of anchovy paste instead of a tin to increase the chance that I'll use the remainder. This is so good on well-toasted bread that, now that I'm thinking about it again, I'm heading back into the kitchen for some more! Thanks, kiwidutch!

Excellent appy recipe! My DH couldn't get enough and, while he enjoys most things I make, he was extra enthusiastic about this. He kept saying, "Wow, this is good!" I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out beautifully! A real keeper!

Right up my alley. Very strong, salty and delicious. All of the ingredients are favorites of mine so imagine my delight when they all come together in one dish. Very addictive.

Great recipe! Hot and garlic-y! My previous tapanades are usually more mild than this, so this was a nice change, although I wouldn't mind less garlic next time.

This is very good, but I think I would prefer more green olives and less black. Will try it that way next time. Meanwhile, will definitely enjoy this batch!

Good stuff, I made it for a family gathering, some had never had Tapenade. They loved it. Even olive haters ate it. I am making again for a baby shower, serving it with baguettes.

Great tapenade! I made half the recipe because it was only for a few of us. Too bad because it was gone in just a few minutes! I served this with wheat crackers. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
