Olive Tapenade

March 18, 2010

I was craving a salty snack but feeling lazy, so I bought some jarred olive tapenade form a fancy grocer that will go unnamed. I was soooo disappointed.  It was almost flavorless, and not very salty.  Should have brought out the mini-Cuisinart and made my recipe:

1 tbs olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 tsp fresh thyme
2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tbs white wine vinegar
2 cups mixed pitted olives
1/4 tsp black pepper

In a medium skillet, heat oil and add onion, garlic and thyme.  Cook 2-3 minutes.  Add wine and vinegar, then simmer to reduce in half.  Pulse with olives and pepper in food processor until well blended.  Serve with crackers or pita chips.
