This is a lovely tapenade based on chopped dried figs and black olives. You can add a little more balsamic if you like it tangy.

This olive dip omits the anchovies traditional for a tapenade. Use slices of baguette or fresh vegetables for the dipping. It is also a good topping for steak.

A tasty dip made from tomatoes, spring onions, olive oil, vinegar, green chillies and olives. Seasoned with tarragon and garlic salt. Goes great with corn chips.

Tapanade is a great dip or platter component, this one uses anchovies as an additional flavour. Make sure you soak them as required otherwise the result becomes quite unpalatable.

It took me a long time to getting around to making a tapenade but I quite like this easy version. I think the big trick is picking olives that you like to eat - I always use Kalamata olives.
