Olive Tapenade

IMG_4679Making your own olive tapenade is so easy to do, and just tastes so much better! And it is great not having to worry about the freshness and what additives have been included in order to extend the use-by date.

Homemade dips with vegetable sticks or gluten free crackers is the perfect entree, and is great to serve at a dinner party. We love making a mezze plate with this, our spicy walnut  beetroot dip and guacamole, and it is always very well received!

We hope you enjoy it x
