greek feast: olive tapanade

Olives Tapanade is a super rich and flavorful condiment for all your sandwiches, wraps, or even pasta. This version calls for green and black olives, but you can use any type of olive and any ratio of green-to-black. Just keep the total amount the same and it will be delicious! Kalamata olives are the saltiest, so nix the extra salt if that is the type you have chosen.
