Wild Tapenade Recipe

This Wild Tapenade recipe is unbelievably tasty and versatile, you can create it using a variety of wild ingredients with great success. For example, if you’re at the coast add in Marsh Samphire and Sea Purslane or if you’re heading for a swim in the sea add in some Sea Lettuce Seaweed.
For a countryside blend add in some nettles for a herby flavour… The list goes on and on.

You can enjoy it tossed through some pasta with salted anchovies, or spread on fresh bread or crackers. If you have a nice bottle of Malbec and a tub of this tapenade then your night is well and truly sorted.

The one I’ll describe below is by far my favourite.
