Olive Tapenade

1/2 clove garlic

1 1/2 cups olives, mix of black and green that have been drained

1/2 roasted red pepper

2 tablespoons tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley

1 tablespoon fresh basil (about 2 leaves)

1 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pinch of sea salt

1 pinch of black pepper


4 pieces of bread

1 large tomato, sliced

1 ounce crumbled feta

¼ cup hummus



  1. Make the olive tapenade: Pulse garlic in the food processor until minced. Add olives, roasted red pepper, parsley, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and lemon juice. Pulse until olives are in small pieces. Add salt and pepper to taste. Alternatively, chop all the ingredients well and stir to combine.
  2. Toast the bread if desired then layer with hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, olive tapenade, and crumble feta.
