Here is a simple recipe for the french inspired Olive Tapenade. It works really well as a spread on breads! Good for a snack or appetisers when hosting a party. Don’t worry if you can not eat it all at once. This stuff gets even better after a day or two in the fridge. Can comfortably serve a small group.
What you will need:
- 100 grams of black olives
- 150 grams of green olives
- 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- pinch of salt and pepper
How to make:
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in to a food processor.
Step 2: Blend until it has a good spreadable consistency.
Step 3: Put in a bowl and serve.
What it will cost:
- A 6 oz great value can of black olives cost me $1.54. I used 100 grams or 58% of the can. So this dish cost 0.89 cents.
- A 32 oz great value can of green olives cost me $3.84. I used 150 grams or 25 % of the can. So this dish cost me 0.96 cents.
- I used one clove of garlic for the teaspoon of minced garlic. In a head of garlic there are around 10 cloves. One head at my store costs 0.50 cents. So, on a rough estimate, I spent about 5 cents on this dish.
- The Pompeian brand of olive oil I used was $4.98. It has 16 oz. I used 1 tablespoon. So I spent around 15 cents.
- The Pompeian bran of red wine vinegar I used was $1.93. It has 16 oz. I used 1 tablespoon. So I spent around 6 cents.
This leads to a grand total of $2.11
