Combine 1/2 cup of olives and the remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until you have a coarsely textured mixture.
Remove the mixture and place in a mixing bowl, and fold in the remaining 1 1/2 cup of olives.
Place the olive mixture in a serving bowl, drizzle with olive oil and decoratively garnish with the pomegranate arils and fresh herbs.
Serve with your favorite bread or crackers.
Golpar is a very unique spice that can only obtained at Persian markets or various online sources. You can skip the spice and increase the fresh herbs, although it is the golpar that makes it so unique and differentiates it from other tapenades.
