Green Olive and Preserved Lemon Tapenade

Green Olive and Preserved Lemon Tapenade

A couple of weeks ago I made a fresh batch of preserved lemons and now that they were ready it was time to enjoy them! I knew exactly what I would be using the first of them in, a green olive tapenade, where they would add an amazing lemony freshness! Other than the preserved lemons this tapenade is pretty much a basic tapenade and it goes great as an appetizer with crusty bread or crostini or as a condiment in other things like sandwiches! I had the first of the preserved lemon green olive tapenade as a snack with some crusty bread and you will have to check back tomorrow to see what I used the rest of the batch for!

I'm crazy for tapenade. I always stare longingly at the $10 tiny jars at the store... homemade has to be a million times better!

This looks amazing... I rarely make tapenade with green olives, because I love the traditional black olive version so much, but this one sounds like a winner.
Too bad I'm all out of preserved lemons. :( Must go out and buy some more.

The salty tanginess of this tapenade sounds fabulous!

This looks so delicious! I made some preserved lemons (I too decided to leave out spices and make them plain) and I'm finding so many new ways to use them. This is definitely top of my list since it has olives in it too!
