How can you not love any appetizer or meal that's quickly prepared?
Olive and Walnut Relish is a quick and versatile appetizer and has quickly
become one of my favorites since having it a local restaurant.
I use Mt. Athos green olives from Whole Food that have a little
mustard seed, herbs and crushed red pepper. Any good quality pitted olive
will do just add a few shakes of oregano and crushed red pepper to taste.
I used about two parts olives to one part walnuts.
Chop both the olives and walnuts rather coarsely...
...and combine in a bowl. I mix in a little extra virgin olive oil and
add a little lemon zest to brighten the whole thing up.
I served it atop fresh mozzarella and crostini but I think it would
also be nice as a condiment with something like grilled fish or chicken.
Wasn't that easy?
