Oil-cured olives, often available at the deli counter, add an authentic touch to this earthy salad. However, for a milder dish, you could replace the olives with diced sweet green pepper.

I omitted the anchovy paste and used the same amount of Sofrito (a paste for soups and stews used in many of my Latin/American recipes)
