Sometimes you just need a quick snack or an easy dip to bring to a picnic. This low carb walnut Tapenade is so flavorful and so easy! I like to serve it up with sliced cucumber.
It really is such a challenge to find snacks that aren’t full of carbs, and if you find one that is low in carbs, it is probably full of junk that we don’t want to put into our bodies. This low carb walnut tapenade is such a good, flavorful replacement for higher carb dips like bean dip or hummus, and it is so easy to pack up and take anywhere!
I like to eat this tapenade with cucumbers, or lets just be honest, I also eat it straight from the jar with a spoon too. Don’t judge. It’s just so good!
When I made this low carb walnut tapenade, I used my Ninja Blender. I love my blender as a much cheaper alternative to a Vitamix or a Blentec. I’ve never tried one of those blenders, but I’ve had my Ninja for 4 years now and I have absolutely no complaints. It is amazing!
Speaking of blending, I left this tapenade a little chunky, because that’s how I like it. You can definitely blend it so it is more of a paste, though. For some reason that just gives me the heebee jeebees! Also, I used avocado oil because I love the taste. You could use olive oil if thats what you have on hand. I like to buy my avocado and olive oil here (affiliate link) because their prices cannot be beat!
Add black olives, walnuts, vinegar, avocado oil, and salt to a food processor and pulse until blended to desired consistency
Serve with sliced cucumbers
