    Olive Salad

    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, pitted
    • 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


    Step 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.
    Step 2
    Add pepper, mustard and olive oil to the olive mixture and stir well to blend.
