Men love it and it looks so pretty. A good cook who tasted it described
the flavor as "bright."
The best part is that you can keep these ingredients on hand.
4 oz.--about 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives
pinch black pepper
1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese--can use dry grated
1/2 tsp. lemon or lime juice
1 clove garlic, peeled
3-4 leaves fresh basil--can use dried when you don't have fresh
1 cup mayo
Combine everything except mayo in a food processor until well blended, then add mayo.
Pulse until just combined.
Serve with pita chips.
Don't be surprised if you find them near the deli section. I am sure it depends on
the supermarket.But they were not in any of the chip sections I looked in.
Note: This is a W.A.D.E. recipe. If you are wondering what that is--W.A.D.E.
stands for Women Against Dull Evenings. I have a single friend who opens her
home to a group of women every month so we can eat and gab and she tries
all sorts of yummy new recipes out on us!
This would a great appetizer if you were serving lamb.
