Quick to make and fairly healthy, too. Just four ingredients and a food processor are all you need. You could do it by hand, of course. It would just take a bit longer.

How to Make Carrot-Olive-Basil-Yogurt Sandwich Spread
- With the shredding disk of the food processor, shred the carrot (or shred by hand using a box grater).
- Change to the regular blade of the food processor and add the olives, basil leaves, and yogurt. Pulse until evenly chopped and it is the consistency of sandwich spread you prefer. (Alternatively, finely chop the olives and basil by hand. Stir the carrots, olive, basil and yogurt together.)
- Taste and adjust the flavor with lemon zest, juice, or pepper if you wish.
- Spread on bread and serve. It is shown in the pictures on homemade marbled caraway rye.
