Greek Tapenade – a simple and delicious appetizer that tastes just like a Greek Salad! Perfect for your next get-together!


  • 1/2 cup pitted and roughly chopped olives (I used Mediterranean mix)
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (chop up larger chunks)
  • salt to taste
  • additional olive oil as desired


  1. Place olives, olive oil, lemon juice and pinch of salt into food processor.
  2. Pulse a few times – ensure olives are still chunky and not pureed at all.
  3. Combine olives with tomatoes and feta cheese.
  4. Softly stir together.
  5. Add additional olive oil and/or salt to taste.
  6. Serve with crostini, crackers, or pita bread and garnish with lemon zest.
