French Fridays: Green olive, basil, and almond tapenade from My Paris Kitchen

My Paris kitchen olive tapenade on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen is a nice twist on a tapenade. Made with green olives, capers, basil, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and almonds, it’s light and fresh and, while I know that tapenade is typically spread on crackers or small toasts, we used this in a quick pasta dish this week and it was perfect. Added lots of flavour without a ton of work on a busy weeknight.

Heads up that the recipe makes a LOT – I used my mini food processor bowl that comes with my immersion blender to make half the recipe and it was perfect for a small batch (that still goes a long way!). I’ll be remembering this recipe for the future as I’ve ALWAYS got little bits and pieces of olives and capers in my fridge needing to be used up!
