  • 2 c. Black Calamata olives, (the small, thin Greek ones)
  • 2 x Cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2/3 c. Italian parsley, minced
  • 5 lrg Spri fresh rosemary, stems removed
  • 3 lrg Spri fresh thyme, stems removed
  • 1/3 c. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Fresh grnd black pepper


  1. Pit the olives. Place olive between thumb and forefinger and squish. This takes a while but you will move quickly along the curve.
  2. Place olives and all remaining ingredients in a blender or possibly food processor and puree into a coarse mix.
  3. Notes:Although no salt is added, the natural composition of Calamata olives makes this appetizer quite salty.
  4. If you are using a blender to puree, you may need to add in some extra oil to facilitate blending. After blending, place in a bowl. Excess oil will rise to the edges of the bowl. Drain off.
  5. Keep refrigerated.
  6. Yield: 6 8 appetizer servings
