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.
