Green Olive Spread with Almonds and Thyme (7 oz)



By now, tapenade is almost a household word, but this lovely textured green olive paste produced by food artisan, Avra Panousopoulou, at her small company, Yiam, in Central Greece, is definitely a step above. Her recipe is a combination of tangy green olives and mildly flavored almonds, ground together into a deliciously grainy spread, enhanced with garlic, thyme and extra virgin olive oil.

This green olive spread is decidedly milder than most, with an underlying garlic umami and hints of sweetness thanks to the thyme, making it an easy match for many different partners: serve it as a dip, spread it on bread as a healthy snack, whisk it into a salad dressing for flavor and texture, spoon it over mild cheese, use it in marinades or as a paste over fish or chicken before baking.

Ingredients : green olives, almonds, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, pepper, thyme

Just a Spoon

I took one bite. I could not stop. This is so delicious that it needs no bread or crackers—just a spoon. Order one for the family and one for your private space.

I bought this to have on hand for a quickie appetizer. Serve on toasted pieces of bread or crackers. The dominate flavor is olives. I didn't notice the almonds or thyme. It is very good. I would purchase again

Used as a dip for vegetables. Would recommend if you love olives.
