Mixed Olive Tapenade
This dip packs a huge amount of flavor into a little bit of space, probably because it features three ingredients that bring big taste in small packages: olives, capers, and anchovies. Many supermarkets have olive bars with several varieties to choose from―you can substitute pretty much any olive for any other here, so take the opportunity to try an unfamiliar one for this dish and maybe you'll find a new favorite. For a larger party, try pairing the tapenade with a hard cheese like manchego or pecorino.
