This was another hit at a recent party. Aside from pitting the olives, this one is super easy as well.
- ½ lb mixed olives, mostly Kalamata
- ¼ cup capers, drained & rinsed
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped finely
- Juice of 1 lemon plus grated zest
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- Rinse olives to remove some of the saltiness. Pit the olives then chop by hand and mix with the remaining ingredients.
- Serve with toast points and slices of fresh mozzarella.
