Sauteed Black Olives With Tomatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by jrusk

This is from Martha Stewart. I've used dried herds and it's still great. This is nice to serve over grilled chicken. I've also eat it alone. It would also be great on crusty bread and served cold on crackers.

This is a lovely appetizer. I must confess that I used canned diced tomatoes and dried herbs. It was still delicious! I served it with toasted pieces of bread. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  1. Rinse and drain olives; you can pit them or not, whichever you prefer. Combine tomatoes and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet, add garlic, and cook over medium-low heat until just starting to brown, 2 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add olives and thyme. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, cook over medium heat until juices thicken a bit and flavors are combined, 5 to 8 minutes. Season to taste with pepper. Serve this colorful antipasto with chunks of crusty bread. Just before serving, stir in the parsley.
