Easy Olive Tapenade

Need a quick appetizer to take to a friend’s??  Try this one on for size–it’s best when it sits for a while before eating, but it’s not necessary…

Easy Olive Tapenade

1 small can sliced black olives-chopped
1 cup green olives-chopped
2 galric cloves-minced small
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil


Mix all of the ingredients together, cover with Saran and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.  Then use as a dip, a sandwich spread, on bruschetta toast with tomatoes or just eat it by the spoonful.

**Wait until you taste it before you add salt, the olives are plenty salty in themselves
