This thick, rich green olive salad dressing is perfect for slightly bitter greens like radicchio and endive. It also makes a delicious and dairy-free dip.

What You'll Need

  • 18 medium olives (green)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar (sherry vinegar or lemon juice)
  • 1 dash salt (fine sea salt, to taste)
  • 1 dash black pepper (freshly ground, to taste)

How to Make It

  1. If they aren't pitted, pit the olives.
  2. Mince the pitted olives and garlic into a paste.
  3. Then mix ​the paste with the oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and add salt and pepper to taste. (You can also do this in a blender if you like.) Use the dressing immediately or cover and chill up to a week.
