Olive Tapenade


One of our favourite dishes is olive tapenade. I think it's probably even good for you, especially if pair it with red wine. Actually a lot of things are good if you pair them with red wine.

On to the recipe!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted oil-packed black olives
  • ½ cup pitted green olives
  • ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil, or more if needed
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, or ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Black pepper
Directions
  • Blend all the ingredients in a food processor
  • Add olive oil as needed to thin the mix as the food processor works
  • Serve with baguette rounds or crackers
  • Will last up to two weeks in the fridge (in tupperware)

Dandelion Pop

This was an unexpected treat we found in a quaint Vancouver delicatessen. Apparently it's quite popular with the locals.  It's fairly sweet, and it has a weird aftertaste that's hard to place. Maybe it's just that I've never tasted dandelion before.  Either way, it's a different taste and quite enjoyable but I couldn't drink a lot of them in rapid succession.
