TAPENADE DIP
from "The Silver Palate Cookbook" by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins

This dark and lusty sauce speaks to us with all the accents of Provence. It seems barely tamed by civilization and still full of secrets. Do we make too much of it? Try it for yourself and see. Stuff it into sun-ripened tomatoes, hard-cooked eggs, or grilled baby eggplants. Thin it slightly and offer it as a dip for crudités, or toss it with cold pasta. In the heat of summer its flavor seems only logical; in winter it stirs memories of summer warmth.

PREPARATION

1. Combine black and green olives, anchovy fillets, garlic, capers, tuna, lemon juice and basil in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until smooth.
2. With the motor still running, dribble in the oil to make a thick, fluffy sauce. For a lighter sauce, ideal for raw vegetables, blend in the mayonnaise.
