Extra tapenade is delicious on crostini or spread on sandwiches.

  • 1/2 cup pitted Niçoise or Kalamata olives
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 2 anchovy fillets, rinsed
  • 1 medium shallot, quartered and peeled
  • 1 large clove garlic, quartered and peeled
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Put the olives, lime juice, anchovies, shallot, and garlic in a food processor and process until smooth, about 20 seconds. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil through the feed tube and process until you have a smooth paste. Stir in the parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.
