  • 1/2 cupblack olives, drained
  • 1tablespooncapers, drained
  • 1 -2clovegarlic, mashed( to your taste)
  • 1/4 cupolive oil
  • Directions

  • Put all ingredients, except olive oil in the food processor and pulse until chopped.
  • Turn processor on low setting and gradually add olive oil until you get a grainy texture.
  • I stop and start and scrape down the sides as I am going.
  • I try to add as little oil as possible, but enough to hold the mixture together so it will spread nicely.
  • Serve with slices of grainy baguette.
  • This is wonderful and easy.

  • “What a great change to using just black olives.Full of flavour and very popular here.Thanks for posting.”

  • “I just made and posted a pic. I love olives, so this is just what I needed for my olive fix. I served it along side some Ritz whole wheat crackers. It sure was tasty! I used 1/4 c. of oil, and put it in without thinking all at once, and I think next time I will put in a little less, and there will be a next time… Delish! Thanks LeeAnn :D”

  • “I layered some jalapeno & herb wraps with this spread, then added some salami,ham and feta cheese. I rolled them up, sliced them and they were absolutely delicious! The spread has a great flavor to it.Thanks for posting.”

  • “This was really really good! I had some almond stuffed green olives to use, and it gave it a nice taste and texture. Took just a couple of minutes to whip this up. Thank you for sharing this!”

  • “Terrific spread!I love olive spreads and I particularly liked the mix of green and black olives in this one.I just used generic grocery store olives, as that’s what I had on hand, and it was still delicious.Next time I’ll try it with the good imported olives and see if it’s even better.Thanks for this keeper!”
