Delicious as an appetizer served over french bread. You'll love it if you love olives! The 2 hour Preparation shown is actually only about 10 minutes hands on. So this can be started a couple of hours or more before needed.

Yummy tapenade for olive lovers. I usually make my tapenade with green olives so I decided to try something different since I really like black olives too. This is an easy recipe to make with great flavors. I only used 3 garlic cloves and found that the olive taste was a bit drowned out the the garlic. I will only use 2 garlic cloves the next time. Thanks for the recipe. Made for The Love Train 2012.
