Olive Tapenade Crostini With Peach

Olive Tapenade with Prosciutto and Peach

This traditional tapenade made with California Ripe Black Olives is generally served with just a crostini. I decided to summer-ize this Mediterranean appetizer by adding fresh yellow peaches, prosciutto, and a sweet dijon and honey glaze. I love a good olive tapenade recipe, so developing this recipe made me really happy!

I was inspired to make this recipe by my love for the Mediterranean diet and how good it is for you. The Mediterranean diet is full of fresh fruit and vegetables which can help reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Olives are a staple of the meditteranean diet, so you should try to sneak them into your diet as often as possible! Whether that be on a salad, in a sandwich, or on a pretty, summery crostini like this one!

I also try to stay as health conscious as possible, so olives are a good choice for me. Did you know that a serving of olives contains 0 grams of trans fat and olives are naturally a cholesterol-free food?

Since you’re making a tapenade, this recipe is a two part process. First you want to make the tapenade, then you want to assemble your crostini. To make the tapenade I started off with the following ingredients.

Add all of the ingredients into a food processor except leave out 1 TBSP of olive oil. Pulse until the mixture is ground, add the second TBSP of olive oil and pulse again. Once everything is well blended, remove to an airtight container and let sit in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

Next, you assemble the crostini’s.

Once you’ve finished making the tapenade, the rest is pretty easy! To make the Dijon honey glaze, turn a nonstick pan to low heat and mix raw honey and dijon mustard together until it’s thick and combined. That’s all it takes!

The next step is to assemble. I started with the tapenade onto the crostini, then wrapped a slice of peach in prosciutto, then drizzled the honey glaze over the top!

Tapenade Really Close

The saltiness of the ripe black olives and the prosciutto are balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the peach and the light tartness of the dijon glaze. Everything pairs together so perfectly in this dish. Add a nice glass of sauvignon blanc and you’ve got yourself a pretty classy (yet super easy and ridiculously inexpensive) appetizer!

The Ninety credit college degree meets the lower bachelor diploma requirements then when you earn your current associate of arts in BA online, you will have access to the most up-to-date technologies in this particular field.
