Sun dried tomato tapenade


  Kamalata olives, sun dried tomatoes, capers, olive oil
Tapenade is traditionally made with olives, pickled capers and anchovies. Personally I do not like fish so I skip the anchovies and replace the strong, salty flavour with sun dried tomato which works equally as well.

1) Pit the olives (for the love of Bowie don't buy pre-pitted olives, especially from a jar. They have no flavour and the consistency of rubber) and remove the stalks of the capers.

2) Add into a blender along with the tomatoes and capers. I mix 3 parts olives to 1 part tomatoes and capers but this should be entirely to taste.

I served this with La Brea olive loaf but watch out for a future recipe using this tapenade!
