Easier than Shake n’ Bake anyday! The tapenade is one of the quickest recipes we make here – and it tastes great too. Just pulse a few times and voila, a fancy tapenade to impress your friends and family with. Great with the Cabernet/Merlot Blend, it brings out the fruit flavors of the wine while the wine compliments and pairs so beautifully with the briny olives. Toss a little goat cheese on a toast with the tapenade and you’ve got the best all-season appetizer dish for potlucks, picnics and holidays. We make tapenade for daily snacking, no need for a special occasion. It keeps well too.
Combine olives, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, oregano, olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a food processor or blender.
Blend until finely chopped.
Transfer to a serving bowl alongside the Chevre spread.
To serve, spread baguettes with chevre and top with the tapanade.
