This is the easiest tapenade recipe as there are no anchovies or capers involved. It can work as a dip, spread for sandwiches. I like to eat it with roasted or boiled potatoes. Use the olives of your choice. Black olives have an intense flavor and are very salty, kalamata olives are sweeter and very tasty. Extra virgin olive oil works best for this recipe.


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until chunky or smooth, depending on your preference.

Quick and easy! I'll never buy pre-made tapenade again. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

This is so easy to make and the taste is great, I made it with Italian Kalamata olives and the spices produced a fast, easy tamenade that I added to Art's Funky Grilled Cheese - made for Let's Party 2011
