This Homemade Olive Tapenade is one of my favorite spreads to make, especially when I have an abundance of olives. Certainly, you can eat olives straight up out of the can (and one of my kids does that constantly!)
But when you have too many olives, think about throwing this spread together to enjoy on your favorite homemade bread!

After having 2-3 food processors that never quite held up, I rested on this one back in early 2022 and it has been an incredible addition to my kitchen!
