Olive Paste



My husband and I had an amazing olive paste served with bread while dining one evening so this was something I wanted to recreate for us at home. Choose quality olives and olive oil from a gourmet or olive shop. The mixed version is much better than just choosing one of the olives. This paste is perfect with bread, a snack or even on top of a salad and its completely healthy. Make sure to pulse it because you do not want a smooth paste rather one with some texture intact.

1-1/2 cups Greek Black Olives
1-1/2 cups Spanish Green Olives
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove

1. Combine all ingredients in the food processor and blend for a few seconds until slightly pulsed.

Yields: 3 cups
