Olive Tapenade for $2.11

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
