Green Olive & Almond Spread

Green Olive & Almond Spread

Serve this simple but unique spread with zucchini or cucumber rounds or fire-toasted thin baguette slices.

Serves 6

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pitted briny green olives
  • 1/4 cup Marcona almonds, or other almonds, toasted (see Ingredient Note and Kitchen Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine olives, almonds, tarragon and lemon juice in a food processor. Pulse until roughly chopped. Add oil in a steady stream and process just until the oil is absorbed. (Alternatively, finely chop the olives, almonds and tarragon by hand and combine with lemon juice and oil in a medium bowl.) The spread should have a coarse but easily spoonable texture. Let stand for about 30 minutes for the flavor to develop.
