Floating Olive Branch
Zesty Jalapeño Tapenade & Marinated Olive Duo

Serves 6 


(Double the ingredients to make both preparations)

1 jar Gavius Gourmet Jalapeño Stuffed Manzanilla Olives, drained

1/4 cup Cilantro & Red Onion Infused Olive Oil 

2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic White Balsamic 

1 each lime, peeled and pith removed

Pinch of Tajin seasoning or chipotle pepper flakes 

Fresh cilantro for garnish 

Tapenade Instructions: 

Place the olives, olive oil, and vinegar in the bowl of a food processor. Add half of the lime peel, a hearty pinch of seasoning, and 2-3 sprigs of fresh cilantro (reserving the rest for garnish). Blend until semi-smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Make sure to have plenty of crostini and crackers for dipping and spreading. Garnish with the reserved ingredients (lime peel and cilantro). 

Marinated Olives Instruction: 

Place olives, olive oil, vinegar, lime peel, and seasoning in a medium bowl. Stir to coat and combine. Transfer the mix to a sealable container (you can reuse the olive jar) and place it in the refrigerator. Refrigerate overnight and remove 1 hour before serving (letting the mix come to room temperature). Transfer to a serving dish or bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro before serving. Have some bread or crostini nearby for dipping and dunking.
