Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Combine olives, almonds, tarragon and lemon juice in a food processor.
  2. Pulse until roughly chopped.
  3. Add oil in a steady stream and process just until the oil is absorbed (alternatively, finely chop the olives, almonds and tarragon by hand and combine with lemon juice and oil in a medium bowl) the spread should have a coarse but easily spoonable texture.
  4. Let stand for about 30 minutes for the flavor to develop.
  5. Make ahead tip: cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

Notes Edit

  1. Spanish Marcona almonds have recently become more popular and more available. They're a little flatter than ordinary almonds, with a richer flavor. Always skinned, most Marcona almonds have already been sautéed in oil and lightly salted when you get them. To toast almonds, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.
