The baby shower gave me my first opportunity to make tapenade, and I thought it was delish. The mommy-to-be loves black olives, so I thought this would be a fun and different appetizer for the party. Everyone, including Maria, said they loved it too!
According to Wikipedia: “Tapenade is a Provençal dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas. It is a popular food in the south of France, where it is generally eaten as an hors d’œuvre, spread on bread.”
