Olive & Mayonnaise Tapenade

I remembered having this as an appetizer while vacationing in San Diego with friends.  It was so tasty, we asked the server what the ingredients were.  Here’s my take on it…




  • 1/8 Cup of Kalamata Olives pitted and finely chopped
  • 1 Tsp of Capers finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tsp minced garlic optional
  • 1/4 Tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. A food processor makes quick work of this recipe, however, it can easily be chopped by hand. You want a coarse mix, don't over-process.
  2. Fold in the mayonnaise and olive oil.
  3. Serve with a toasted crusty white or artisan bread.
