  1. In a food processor, place the feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and oregano. Using the pulse setting, blend the mixture until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl. Blend in the olives with a spoon. Refrigerate until serving.


If you have some olivada or tapenade lying around, spoon in a tablespoon rather than pitting and chopping black olives!

FANTASTIC!! You have to be fond of feta cheese and greek flavourings, however. I used kalamata olives. I made this then spread it on wholemeal tortillas, laid roasted red peppers in a strip down the middle and rolled them up. Then I cut them (carefully) into pinwheels. Everyone RAVED about them! The spread is delicious. Thanks for a great recipe! - 15 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. i highly recommend blending the sun-dried tomatoes in at the end with the black olives. everyone that tried it absolutely loved it. - 15 Sep 2008


Something else. WOW!! I don't give many recipes 5 stars, but this was excellent! I put the olives in the processor (I used kalamata). I then garnished with some sun dried tomatoes, olives and basil. I think you could add some fresh basil for a more complex flavour. I will make this again it was yummy. - 15 Sep 2008
