By definition a tapenade is a savoury paste made from olives, capers and anchovies with olive oil and lemon juice. A tapenade is delicious served as is, but I added some feta cheese as I had some in the refrigerator and I love feta cheese. You don’t need to add the feta cheese if it’s not something you like.
9 oz (1 jar) black olives pitted (preferably Kalamata)
1 tablespoon capers
1 clove garlic
3 anchovies (optional)
2-4 tablespoons olive oil
squeeze of lemon
4 oz (1/2 cup) Feta cheese
salt & pepper
small round, plain rice crackers (or any rice cracker you like)
1. Add olives, capers, garlic and anchovies to your food processor and blend until almost a paste. Now add the feta cheese. Blend some more until almost a paste again.
2. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while mixing until a paste forms.
3. Season with salt, pepper and lemon.
4. Spread on rice crackers or use as dip.
