This Tapenade recipe will bring you to the Provence countryside.
This is a classic olive spread to have an appetizer during the summer times.
On some toasted bread with fresh garlic scrubbed on it for the most authentic experience.
It would be typically accompanying some cold drinks like a pastis or a glass of white wine or rosé.
It can also be used for canapés or in recipes like the pissaladière.

  • 1 teaspoon capers
