How to Make Olive Tapenade:
The first step to creating this tapenade is to dice the capers, shallots, and garlic.
Go ahead and slice the baguette into thin slices about a ¾ inch wide.
Place the bread slices into a toaster oven or oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes or until bread is lightly toasted.
In a food processor or blender combine the black olives, green olives, capers, shallots, garlic, olive oil, and black pepper. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
Last, spread the dip on the toasted bread and enjoy! The tapenade can be stored in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
Using great Lindsay Olives, we created this tapenade for you to enjoy. Hopefully, it will not only score a touchdown but also pull off a two-point conversion.
