Sundried Tomato Tapenade

Recipe by  

"A to-die-for take on the usual olive tapenade. Don't use California sundried tomatoes because they are too sweet! Every time I make this I get requests for the recipe! I've never actually had the patience to chill this and always end up serving it right away. It's a huge hit! Serve with your favorite crackers."

I tried this recipe this weekend, and it was super easy to make and was a crowd-pleaser! I served with crackers and apples.

Awesome recipe. Two garlic cloves were enough. I added fresh basil which took this to the next level. Wonderful flavour and texture. Can't wait to make it again.

Sooo easy and good! I added about 3/4 cup canned pitted green olives (not the kind you find in a jar in a pickle brine) just because we love this type of olive and 1/3 cup of chopped kalamata olives as the recipe states. I added about a teaspoon of drained and chopped capers also! I used the olive the tomatoes were packed in. VERY FLAVORFUL! Wonderful with the cream cheese but also very good spread onto crostini bread! Thank you Alexis! This is a keeper!

So easy to make and full of flavor. In addition to serving over cream cheese as recommended by the recipe author, this would make a fantastic topping for crostini. Thanks Alexis for sharing your recipe, this is a keeper.
