Olive Tapenade with Garlic Toast
Hello & Happy Monday!!
When it comes to entertaining or dining out, I get bored with main dishes and enjoy the appetizers more. I find that the appetizers are more flavorful, more creative, and I just love to explore flavors. My favorite apps are the easiest ones! lol
Believe it or not, you can make a fab appetizer with just a handful of ingredients in minutes! One of my main go to’s is olive tapenade! It’s a fancy way of saying an “olive spread”. You can enjoy it on bread, eat it with veggies, or throw on a sandwich for a lil flavor boost. If you love all things salty, you’re going to love this concept.
What’s fab about this app, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, has minimal ingredients, packed with olives, flavor, takes minutes to throw together, perf with wine, perf for entertaining , perf for any season, can easily be made in bulk, and paired with veggies or even throw on a sandwich. You just can’t go wrong!
If you love quick apps that will make you look like an iron chef or simply love all things olives, you’re going to love my staple Olive Tapenade with garlic toast!
