WebMD Recipe

This dish was inspired by an olive salad I sampled at a nearby supermarket’s olive bar. It's wonderful on crackers or as a spread on sandwiches. It can also be used in most recipes calling for tapenade.

  • 1/2 cup
    black olives, pitted
  • 1/2 cup
    green olives, itted
  • 1 teaspoon
    garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoons
    capers, drained and rinsed well
  • 2 tablespoons
    red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon
    lemon zest, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper, add more to taste if desired
  • 1 teaspoon
    Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons
    extra virgin olive oil
  1. Add olives, garlic, capers, red pepper, and lemon zest to the bowl of a small food processor and press "chop" briefly. If you don’t have a mini food processor, put the ingredients on a cutting board and chop well with a knife or chopper tool. Add the chopped mixture to a small bowl.
  2. Add pepper, mustard and olive oil to the olive mixture and stir well to blend.
