  • 1/2 cup pitted briny green olives 

  • 1/4 cup almonds 

  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon 

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 



  • Combine the olives, almonds, tarragon, and lemon juice in a food processor. Pulse until roughly�chopped.

  • Add the oil in a steady stream, and process just until the oil is absorbed.

  • Alternatively, finely chop the olives, almonds, and tarragon by hand and combine with the lemon juice and oil in a medium bowl.

  • The spread should have a coarse but easily spoonable texture. Let stand for about 30 minutes for the flavor to develop.
