Tapenade is great served as a dip along with a sliced baguette or pita chips (perfect for your New Years Eve party!), and makes a flavorful spread for sandwiches and wraps. Sun-dried tomatoes brighten up traditional tapenade and add a nice balance to the salty kalamata olives.Recipe: Sun-dried Tomato & Olive Tapenade
