Author Notes: Simple, easy and the old fashion way. A delight. You will find similar ones in traditional French recipe books, but here the anchovies are de-salted which make for a less salty Tapenade. —Kenza Saadi
ounces anchovies (60 gr)
ounces black Greek olives - seedless (250 gr)
ounces capers (60 gr)
cup olive oil (6 cl)
the juice of two lemons
teaspoon thyme (or a branch)
garlic clove crushed
- First de-salt the anchovies by leaving them in milk for two to three hours. They can stay overnight as well. This is a good first step so that the Tapenade does not come out too salty.
- In a mixer, place all the ingredients and mix until you get an almost smooth paste. It is actually delicious if you still have little pieces of olives and capers.
- If you feel the taste is too blend or you want to add some "pep", just add more lemon juice.
