We had seen this in sandwiches from a local deli, but didn't know what it was until now. This is terrific on a sandwich! It's a fairly strong, exciting flavor that matches up well with ham, crackers, and rustic kinds of bread. Thank you for adding a new condiment to our kitchen! Made for Zaar World Tour 5.

I love green olives and this tapenade really hit the spot. I served it as an appetizer with lightly toasted wheat French bread, and it was a hit with my hubby. This is a recipe that I will keep on hand for holiday get-to-gethers. It is easy to make, and I think it will go very well with any type of crackers or breads. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for ZWT5 Spain/Portugal region.
