“From "Eat Well Naturally," a free e-letter with lots of yummy, healthy recipes. The cuisine of Provincial France has given us a wonderful gift in tapenade, a savory black olive paste that is absolutely divine on bread, pasta, or salads. It‘s a cinch to make and completely versatile: you can use it as an appetizer, snack, salad, side, or as a tasty condiment for your main dish. Heart-nurturing fatty acids and the healthful properties of garlic are just a few of the reasons this robust spread (or dip or condiment) is such a popular feature of the Mediterranean diet. Make sure to use good quality olives, not the canned variety!”
