A Sandwich With Tapenade, Olive-Style
Memorable sandwich toppings come in many forms, some of which are spreadable.
I got into olives recently.
Why it took 26 years I do not know. I think the green was a turnoff.
But one day in 2005, at 1-For-1 Pizza (you pay for one, you get one) on Bank Street in Ottawa with my friend Steve, I ordered a fresh slice full of black olives. There were too many. It was very salty.
But the flavour stayed with me.
Soon I was craving them all the time. Now I buy black olives by the tiny bagful at the Richard Lenoir market on a tri-weekly basis.
This sandwich, loaded with olive tapenade freshly made by my wife, was delicious. Try something like it.
