Prep Time

15 Minutes

Cook Time





  • An 8 oz bottle of Elda’s Kitchen Garlic and Herb Sauce
  • 1 jar green olives, sliced
  • 1 can black olives, sliced
  • 1 pack of your favorite baguette or mini-toast bites
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • ¼ cup fresh italian parsley


If you want your toast a little crispier, you can broil your baguette or mini-toast for a few minutes until golden brown.

Fill your food processor with a mix of black and green olives, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, zest of one lemon, pinch of salt, and several pinches of  2 tablespoons of Elda’s Kitchen Garlic and Herb Sauce, and top with ¼ cup fresh italian parsley. Blend in your food processor for a few seconds to really mix the ingredients together. Don’t over blend here, you want to preserve the texture rather than make a smooth paste.

Lay out your crackers or mini-toast bites and top each with a healthy serving of your olive mixture and enjoy!
