Appetizer — Kalamata Olive Spread or Dip

Multi-purpose and delicious, we keep this dip on hand for dips and spreads. It is also the base for gravy for a Lamb dish.


  • 3 parts Pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1 part Sundried
  • 1/4 part Capers


  1. I squeeze each olive to be sure that the pit is really absent.
  2. Place the all of the ingredients into a food processor, and process until the mixture is a slightly chunky pureé. (My food processor is one of the small ones and works fine for this recipe.)
  3. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

I have been known to add anchovies and/or ricotta cheese.

Spread on crackers or use as a dip with carrot sticks, chips or crackers.
