Mara’s Ooh-La-La Olive Tapenade ©

My friends, be forewarned….this appetizer has a KICK to it! It is a “Mara-modified” version of the traditional Provençal and Mediterranean olive tapenades.  It is a gluten-free and casein-free recipe, only to be eaten by those strong enough to brave its tartness!  Be sure to check your labels to ensure you are using gluten-free versions of the below ingredients.  ENJOY!  

10 oz pitted and drained Kalamata olives

2 oz drained and rinsed capers

1/2 of large avocado

1 large tomato, sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp Dijon mustard

3 tbsp chopped parsley

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

2 oz marinated artichoke hearts

3 tbsp lemon juice

1tsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

Place all ingredients, except for oil, into a food processor.  Blend ingredients, then slowly add oil until mixture is smooth.  Salt and pepper to taste. Use gluten-free breadsticks to dip into tapenade. 

Happy Eating!!……Mara
