Three Olive Tapenade

Three Olive Tapenade


  • 2 Cups of olives (any three types of olives you like. I used a mix of green and black)
  • 1 red bell pepper roasted and cut into 1″ pieces (can be roasted in the oven or on the grill)
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp parsley loosely chopped
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp capers
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil


  • Put the olives, capers, garlic and red pepper into a food processor
  • Pulse in 1 second intervals 10-15 times and scrape down the sides of the bowl
  • Add the parsley lemon juice and olive oil and pulse another 10 times or so, stopping in the middle to scrape down the sides of the bowl
