And hey, that’s okay! There are PLENTY of easy appetizers you can make without slaving in the kitchen all day!

It doesn’t get much easier than throwing all of your ingredients into a food processor/blender and being done. This appetizer recipe calls for olives from Spain, but great news: Most olives you find in the US are imported from there.
