Tu B’Shevat Tapanade

Tu B’Shevat Tapanade

Here is something different for Tu B’Shevat which begins tonight, a departure from fruit dishes usually served on the holiday.  It incorporates one of the seven species of Israel: fig, pomegranates, grapes, dates, wheat, barley and olives, foods traditionally eaten on Tu B’Shevat. It packs a double dose of olives: olives and olive oil. You can make it in under five minutes and is perfect to serve on cheese and crackers, as a topping for fish, as a sandwich spread or combined with avocado as a dip. Pair with my “Fruits of Israel Fizz” and you you will have a great Tu B’Shevat celebration! Chag Sameach!   The Recipe
