Sun-dried tomato tapenade. This wonderful recipe is what everyone should have in their repertoire for appetizers. Ready in less than 10 minutes, if you have any leftovers, they can last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

A perfect balance of basil and sun-dried tomatoes.

The anchovies play a very important role in this dish as they give it the necessary saltiness and savor. As you may notice while reading the recipe, that no salt is added. Taste and adjust if necessary by adding another anchovy filet or olive oil.

Served alongside fresh slices of baguette or crackers. Try it also over mozzarella for a spin to your Caprese salad.

Use a good quality olive oil too.

This recipe has been given to me by my wonderful friend Eliane, chef and owner of Born to Taste a long time ago. She has shared so many wonderful recipes with me throughout the years.

  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
  • 3 fillets of anchovies
  • 1 tablespoon, drained capers
  • 3 to 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • about 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and chop. Add olive oil until you get a smoother texture. Serve with crackers or slices of toasted baguette.

  2. I serve it in a "weck" pot like the ones you buy to put the mousse de foie gras in. It is a rustic presentation.
