whole, pitted kalamata olives
1 (4 ounce) package
What an innovative idea! I love the pungency and meatiness of the olives, and the garlic gives this delicious spread a robust punch. If you serve it as suggested, the french bread should balance the saltiness of the olives. I can't wait to use it on pizza in place of basil pesto. Thanks for a great idea, Behr Kleine!
Omitted the pecans due to a nut allergy, otherwise concluded that we didn't really need them. This was kind of salty and oily, yet ideal served on mini Melba Toasts as a snack. The toasts just soaked up any run off anyways.
This is a delicious appetizer. I had it at a Greek restaurant, and then found this recipe. It tasted like the appetizer at the restaurant, and guests loved it!
This dip was so easy. I garnished the serving tray with sliced roma tomatoes to add on the bread if desired. I will make this again and again. Wonderful with a nice Cabernet.
Nice flavors in this, and easy to make too. It makes a bit more than I expected, but that's okay. I'm the only one in the house that likes olives, so it's up to me to eat it, but I think I can manage. I had whole pecans but just pulsed them a bit in the food processor before adding the other ingredients and it was fine. thanks for the recipe!
This was wonderful! Unfortunately, I only realized after I started that my food processor didn't work so I had to chop everything by hand. The flavor was delicious though, and I think I liked the more robust texture better in the end anyway. Served with toast rounds as a thanksgiving appetizer.
This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes. everyone who tries this requests the recipe. LOVE it. I add more garlic and serve it on crackers as well. It helps if you have a palate that enjoys a lot of flavor.
VERY SALTY (much too salty). I used VIGO Greek Olives and maybe that was the culprit. I would suggest rinsing the olives well and drying them to cut the salt. I like the idea of this recipe so I may try it with black olives instead. I agree with the reviewer who commented on the color. It was pretty yucky. I garnished it with parsley, which helped.
