Black Olive Tapenade Recipe


Summer is officially here and that means RV potluck season is in full swing. And there is nothing like an RV potluck. When a group of RVers gather together over food, exciting things tend to happen. New friendships are formed; favorite new recipes are found; and recommendations for places to visit are added to oneís growing "must see" list.

Iíve always found the RV potlucks to be more fun than any other potlucks because everybody has so many interesting travel tales to share. And usually, the stories turn to tales of who had the craziest engine breakdown, tire blowout, or other mishap along their journey. Itís all part of the road life experience, and itís a treat to share asphalt antics with those who truly appreciate the lifestyle. And itís even better when told with a belly full of yummy food.

One thing I love to do at potlucks is dunk vegetables, crackers, chips and breads into various mounds of tasty dips. Last summer, I created a black olive dip that definitely begs one to dip, dip, and then dip again.

This yummy Black Olive Tapenade dip can be whipped up in just moments and pairs well with any of the above-mentioned dunkers. However, I think it pairs best with toasted French bread, toasted pita triangles and raw veggies. It is also quite a treat slathered on top of some cold pasta.

With all of this dippy deliciousness, I feel I must give fair warning. This dish is addictive, so if youíre taking it to a potluck, you might want to triple or even quadruple the recipe.

Also, if you really want a dip that zings, try this recipe with green olives instead.
