  2. While potatoes are cooking, pit olives, if necessary, and dice finely, about 1/16"; just before potatoes are cooked, heat milk and olive oil together.
  3. Drain potatoes and shake them around in the pan until they become as dry as possible; coarsely mash with a potato masher or put through a ricer; add milk mixture, salt and pepper; mash until smooth and fluffy.
