Provençal Tapenade

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 1 1/3 CUPS
  • MAKE-AHEAD

The best olives to use for a proper tapenade are naturally the ones Provençal cooks use: black Niçoise. In a pinch, however, any top-quality black olives can be combined with capers and anchovies to make this rustic spread.

  5. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 1 teaspoon Cognac (optional)
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. Grilled or toasted bread, for serving
  1. In a food processor, combine the olives with the capers, tuna and anchovies. Pulse until a coarse puree forms. With the machine on, gradually add the oil until incorporated. Transfer the Tapenade to a bowl and stir in the Cognac. Season with pepper and serve with grilled bread
