Kalamata Olive Tapenade Recipe


Hello beautiful people!! Geia Sas from California to the world. I am happy to bring you all four recipes in one post.

This post is all about one of my favorite ingredients: Kalamata olives!! Lucky me I had a huge container of olives from Costco in my fridge, and really wanted to make something unique with them. I was tired of just putting them in my Greek salad. πŸ˜›

Lately, we have had an abundance of beautiful fresh garden vegetables laying around. I thought why not incorporate these yummy tomatoes into the mix?
