• Venetian Mix for Olive Tapenades


    The subtle layers of flavor in our Venetian for Olive Tapenade Mix combine to set this home-made olive tapenade leagues apart from the sameness found in bottled tapenades.  You pick the olives; use whatever suites your taste or occasion.  Kalamata olives are pictured.  Make it tame or spicy, to your taste!  Serve tapenade with crackers or baguette slices.  It’s quick and easy - just the thing to get dinner or parties off to a great start.  And it keeps practically forever.


    Mixed Olives:  Great for a spread on baguette slices.  Venetian Mixed Olive Tapenade pictured with a mix of green & black olives and oil packed sun dried tomatoes.

    With Olives, Figs and Goat Cheese: Mix kalamata olives with dried figs and serve with goat cheese rounds to spread on crackers or baguette slices (pictured) - just beyond belief!  This is a total show stopper as the appetizer for an elegant party.  See RECIPES for Venetian Tapenade with Figs and Goat Cheese directions. 

    Pasta Topping:   Venetian Olive Tapenade is delicious as a quick topping for pastas (pictured with kalamata olives and shaved Pecorino Romano cheese).  As simple as this is, it makes a beautifully understated, elegant meal.

    Pizza Topping:  Dab tapenade on heat-&-serve pizzas to take them to a whole new level. 

    Olive Aioli or Salad Dressing:  Mix prepared tapenade with mayonnaise for Venetian Olive Aioli (great spread for Mediterranean sandwiches), or mayo and buttermilk for a lovely salad dressing.  For an Italian Olive vinaigrette, add 1/2 C prepared tapenade to 1/3 C balsamic or red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard; use on tossed salads or greens and on sandwiches made with crusty bread.
