Tuna Tapenade Famous Recipe
You can use whatever you have on hand for this quick and easy dish,
but imported Italian tuna packed in olive oil and good quality green olives
such as nicoise or picholine will be well worth the small investment.
1 can (6 oz, 170 g) tuna, drained
4 Tbs (60 ml) butter, softened
1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped green olives
2 Tbs (30 ml) chopped capers
2 Tbs (30 ml) chopped fresh basil
2 Tbs (30 ml) lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well, mashing with a
fork. Serve at room temperature with crackers, pita bread, or thinly
sliced French bread. Serves 4 to 6.
