KALAMATA OLIVE TAPENADE

2

Who doesn't love tapenade? It is the perfect blends of brine and herbacious freshness. Some may feel squeamish with anchovies, but it isn't fishy at all! Anchovies add a saltiness and a natural umami that is perfect and no one will be able to tell what it is...trust me!

6
1 pound kalamata olives (pitted)
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
½ cup olive oil
3 tbsp capers
8 anchovy fillets
1 tbsp lemon juices and zest
pepper to taste
Finely chop all the ingredients and mix well...or use a pestle and mortar or a food processor ...and VOILA! Smear it on sandwiches, dip toasted pitas into it, serve with almost any meat...especially lamb
