Kalamata Olive Dip / Aioli
My obsession with this dip began with the Bistro Fries at Nordstrom's Bistro (is there a better reward after a long day of spending lots of money?) and continued with the Crudite at True Food Kitchen. Easy to make, I've tweaked over the years, and we now very much enjoy this as a snack before dinner, or sometimes, even dinner! Photographed here with sliced Radishes, Carrots, Celery, Brussel Sprouts and Purple Cabbage. You can make this vegan or vegetarian (see notes in recipe).
Serve with French Fries (as they do at the Nordstrom Bistro), or as a dip for a Crudite, or even as a smear on a sandwich - this really goes with anything!
Time: 10 minutes
Instructions: Blend all the ingredients in a food processor or using an immersion blender. To store, place in an airtight container - it should keep a few weeks.
