Recipes using olive tapenade?
I have a tapenade surplus and would appreciate ideas on how to use it. Is it safe to freeze?
I guess I could turn regular spaghetti sauce into "puttanesca".... hmmm...
I go to a little cafe called Haute Cakes in Newport Beach and they serve an egg salad sandwich with a black olive tepenade spread. Delicious!
Thanks, that gives me a lot of ideas (e.g. if it works with egg salad, why not potato salad, and pasta salad... there was a salmon & tapenade recipe on epicurious too that looks good).
Heh, my son told me about Michael Chiarello's show today--he made pizzettas with olive tapenade and pecorino cheese and we're hoping to try that recipe on Friday.
In the summer I like to make stuffed burgers with tapenade & feta in the center--keeps the burger from drying out on the grill. I'm pretty sure it keeps for a long time. I just added some to soup (which didn't turn out as I hoped so I'm not really recommending that) that was left over from said burger grilling this summer. Now I wish I'd made egg salad sandwiches with it!
