Quick Olive Tapenade

This olive tapenade is perfect served with mini toasts, a soft french baguette, or even topped on a steak! The briny flavour from the capers and the addition of fresh basil add a distinct and wonderful flavour. It’s really like heaven on a slice of bread.

The beauty of the dish comes from all the wonderful colours of the included ingredients. Tasty black and green olives, crimson sundried tomatoes and the brightness of fresh basil and parsley.
