Add the olives and capers; pulse 12 to 15 times to chop. Add the lemon juice, mustard and pepper; process for 10 to 15 seconds, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

2.   With the motor running, add the olive oil through the feed tube and process until a thick paste forms and is homogenous, about 20 seconds.
