"Rich and flavorful avocado adds a surprising touch to the robust flavors of tapenade, a typical Mediterranean topping. You can also serve tapenade over grilled salmon or halibut, any cut of steak or sliced roast beef. Or try tapenade in a turkey or chicken sandwich."

black pepper, freshly ground
garlic, roasted and mashed

I think I used too many olives for my own taste, but I loved the avocado with the chicken. It was a nice change from the usual chicken, and I will make it again.
Holy cow, what an explosion of flavor! This is one of the most flavor-packed meals we've ever had. I didn't have any tomatoes, so I used some canned diced tomato and it was fine. We also didn't have any olives (unnecessary in my opinion, would have been too salty with them) or fresh basil, so I let ~1 Tbsp dried crushed basil "marinate" in the lemon juice / water / olive oil mixture for about an hour. It was fantastic!
I followed recipe exactly it was so good.
This was delicious! My entire family enjoyed it thoroughly!
I started out with one lemon and I had enough lemon for this recipe. It is very good and will be a regular for us
I thought that this was ok but i have had better
We had some leftover chicken, so I made only the tapenade to toss over it. Delicious! Simple enough to remember, too. I would definitely make this again.
I made this for my mother's birthday because it was something that sounded nice and was on everyone's diet! It took me a little longer to make. I think it is because I was using some ingredients I wasn't used to. I also used only one lemon and still found the lemon taste overpowering. Still, worthwhile to make again.
