Trader Joe’s Green Olive Tapenade: Entertaining Favorite

I’ve decided it is time to start trying new foods and products, to expand my foodie palette, so when I saw this store brand olive tapenade at a Trader Joe’s I figured why not pick it up. The first place I brought it was a friend’s house for dinner. And after the first bite, I quickly knew it would become one of my entertaining staple.

It has a strong olive smell, but the fresh taste is perfectly balanced with spices and other vegetables. I like to serve it on lightly salted pita chips, but you could also serve it on crackers.

    I am so excited to know this. I just picked this up at Trader Joes last week and aven't tried it yet. Do you enjoy it best on a pita chip?

  5. Hi Alisa,

    Yup, a pita chips works best. But, you can also use a cracker or pretzels. I would, however, caution not to use anything flavored because you don't want to take away from the taste.

    I am going to try it mixed into penne with chopped sauted kale/collards/or other greens, and finished with fresh tomatoes and parmesan. I do this with a homemade tapenade made with a blend of black/green/kalmata olives. Lee hoffman
