Why I Love This Recipe

This tangy tapas dish, featuring savory green olives and Mediterranean herbs and spices, can be used as a spread or as a filling for’s Olive Empanadas. Besides they’re savory flavor, canned olives deliver monounsaturated fats, “good” fats – that are healthy for the heart.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 can (about 6 ounces) pitted green olives, drained
1/4 cup vinegar
4 canned anchovy fillets, cut in slivers
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon crushed rosemary
2 bay leaves


Put the olives in a small saucepan and crush with the back of a spoon until they crack open. Cook over medium heat until the olives release their liquid; remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Cool.
