    Kalamata Olive and Vegetable Antipasto Tapenade
    Adding a little Calabrese Vegetable Antipasto to your tapenade lightens it up a bit and makes for a less intense olive flavour. This spread is amazing on crusty bread or crackers. It plays well with hard Italian cheese like Grana Padano. You can also use it as a pizza topping.

    - 1/4 pound pitted Kalamata olives (check them for pit pieces)
    - 2 tablespoons olive oil
    - 2 garlic cloves
    - 1 1/2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed thoroughly with cold water
    - 1 anchovy fillets
    - 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    - 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
    - 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    - 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    - 2 tablespoons Spicy Mixed Vegetable Antipasto Calabrese – Aurora Brand or the like.
    - Freshly ground pepper

    In a food processor pulse the garlic, anchovy, olive oil and capers into a chunky paste.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until you have your desired consistency. For this tapenade it’s nice to have a bit of a chunky texture because the veggies add a nice crunch.

    Add freshly ground pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.
