This spread is made with two varieties of olive that are native to Tunisa. Sahli black olives and a small percentage of Meski green olives are pitted and crushed to form a fine paste. This paste is mixed with extra virgin olive oil to produce a rich and intense spread that is easy to use as an hors d'oeuvre or on a sandwich with fresh tomatoes and cheese. As with all of the Mahjoub products, this is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes. This product is organic.
