Black Olive Tapenade

Tapenade, the traditional Provençal condiment made with black olives, is a versatile staple. Delicious when spread on little toasts for an aperitif, a spoonful also makes a great accompaniment to grilled fish or any kind of roast. The tapenade can also be thinned with olive oil and drizzled or used as a base for vinaigrette. Tapenade will keep in the fridge for a month or more, topped with a thin layer of olive oil.
