Bat Brain Halloween Dip






This dip may look scary, but you and your guests will not run away from it at your Halloween party! This low-fat, vegetarian olive tapenade is a great spread to serve with our home-made Halloween crackers and pairs perfectly with cocktails and wine. If you like olives, you will love this Mediterranean dip. It's like a party in your mouth with it's robust flavors from the salty capers, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. 

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons of sun dried tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of capers
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
6 oz. can of black olives
2 teaspoons of olive oil

Kitchen Essentials:
Wood board
Knife
Food Processor
Spatula
Strainer

Directions:
Begin by adding the garlic, lemon juice, capers and sun dried tomatoes to the food processor. Turn on the food processor and allow it to chop all the ingredients for 15 seconds. Scrape the sides of the food processor and turn on again for another 15 seconds. Repeat until the garlic, capers and sun dried tomatoes are very finely chopped.

Strain the liquid out of the can of black olives and add the black olives to the food processor. Lastly add the olive oil and using the pulse button, pulse 10 to 15 times. You can make the dip as chunky or as smooth as you like. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!
