1/2 cup Vidalia onions, finely chopped

1/2 cup sweet red onions, finely chopped

1 3/4 cups kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped

1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

1 clove garlic, crushed

freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons red or orange bell peppers, finely chopped

1. In a small bowl, mix the onions, olives, and capers.

2. Pulse lemon juice, oil, parsley, oregano, lemon zest, and garlic in a food processor for 3 to 5 seconds, then pour over onion-olive mixture and combine with a fork.

3. Place tapenade in a serving bowl, season with pepper to taste, top with chopped peppers, and serve.

Tapenade may be used as a dip for pita, spread on bruschetta or sliced baguette, on top of a mixed greens salad, or as a topping for rice, potato, or pasta.
