Olive Tapenade Crostini

One of my favorite things about the holidays is trying new recipes and sharing them with you!

Olive Tapenade Crostini... super easy to make and really tasty! If you love olives like me, this is the recipe for you!This Olive Tapenade Crostini is definitely holiday party worthy. I made it for the family in Dallas last week, and it was a party pleaser for sure.

The Mezzetta Kalamata Olives (of which I’m a HUGE fan!) and green olives combined with capers, fresh rosemary, lemon juice with a roasted red pepper garnish on top is really a winning combination of ingredients. The tapenade is absolutely perfect atop a crostini, but would also be amazing on a panini or on a piece of fish or chicken. And it makes a pretty appetizer, too!
