The first time I made the Olive Tapenade I used my electric Cuisinart Food Processor. Well I was either not paying attention or didn’t have control of the food processor and the olives looked like mush. OE, operator error. It was not very appealing. So I tried the recipe again and this time I used my Cuisinart Prep Express Manual Food Processor. Ok, so it’s manual, and you have to pull the cord a few times, but the olives were chopped just the way I like them. The recipe also calls for lemon juice. You can use either lemon from a bottle or freshly squeezed lemon juice. If you don’t have a lemon squeezer try this one, it’s a descent inexpensive lemon squeezer.
