Easy Green Olives Tapenade

Updated: Aug 17, 2022

You can use this tapenade as a snack, to spread on crackers, to add to a salad or to serve with roasted chicken. Do not throw away the olive’s brine. In the following recipe I’ll show you how to marinate chicken with this brine. This recipe is super simple and tasty, the lemon gives balance to the saltiness of the olives. I used green olives stuffed with garlic, that's why you won't see garlic in the ingredients list. If you use another type of olives, add garlic. In my Instagram account you can find a video for the steps on how to make this recipe. After you make this recipe, let me know if you serve it as an appetizer or in a meal.
