Recipe by PickyEater

From Andrew Schloss' Cooking with Three Ingredients: "Tapenade, the rich olive sauce of Provence, is usually made from ripe black olives. This rendition gives tradition a tweak by substituting leaner, saltier green olives. It is just the right spread on toasts to serve with drinks, but is equally good served as a cold sauce for grilled chicken or fish, or as a dip for vegetables."


  1. In a blender or food processor, or with a large knife by hand, finely chop the olives and garlic. Blend in the olive oil to make a paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. PickyEater Note: Refrigerating over night allows the flavors to blend and significantly improves the taste.
