"This recipe was given to me by a coworker for the holidays. It is best when made with olives purchased at a deli. Serve with your favorite cracker, baguettes or thin italian bread slices." — GRAYCE

pitted black olives
pitted green olives
pitted kalamata olives
This is SOOOOO good. People ask me all the time "what is this"?! I don't use kalamata olives because usaully I forget so 1 use one can of black olives and one jar of spanish olives. I also suggest on uping the oil and garlic(I love garlic) I also added some black pepper, it gave it a nice kick. a GREAT party spread so quick and easy
This is similar to tapenade. Try it with a tuna salad, on a tuna salad sandwich, or on a sandwich with baked salmon and avocado.
If you're near a Trader Joe, you can buy a jar of tapenade. Another olive concoction is what TJ calls a Muffaletta, also sold in jard.
ALL JUST WONDERFUL!!
Very good but I added some ingredients, which made it even better. I added a handful of grated Parm cheese and a handful of chopped walnuts. Everybody loved it!!!
Guests ate this up! AWESOME (I love olives) Changes: 2 T balsamic vinegar, 1.5 T olive oil, 2-3 garlic cloves. For those of you without food processors, don't be afraid to use your blender. Just add EVERYTHING all at once, or it's too dry to blend properly. Be sure to mince the garlic before adding it to the blender.
I made this for a party- it was very popular! I served it in a bread bowl with baguette slices on the side and garnished with whole olives. The balsamic vinegar adds a great sweet/sour note to the saltiness. If you love olives, try this spread!
This is SOOOO yummy! I was trying to emulate an olive spread we would get at a deli near where we used to live. This is a near perfect match! I only used 1 tablespoon of the balsamic because I didn't want it to be too sweet -- I like the saltiness! I am interested to try it with the required amount of balsamic though -- perhaps next time. For serving, I toasted some baguette slices, spread a layer of homemade Garlic Spread (recipe on this site by CKBK), and then topped with the olive mixture. It was an AMAZING appetizer!!! Will make again. Very pretty too.
I just made this for Easter and had everyone asking for the recipe. It's fantastic. You've got to be a big fan of olives though....which my family is. Definitely a keeper!
I just made this and it is wonderful even before refrigeration. I added about one-quarter of a cup of grated parmesean and loved the flavor it added.
