This courtesy of Jamie Oliver. It is a simple addition to dinner. He suggests adding leftovers to hot spaghetti, I tried that with some zucchini ribbons and it was fabulous


  1. In serving bowl, squeeze the tomatoes.
  2. Squeeze the olives in same bowl.
  3. Add olive oil and red wine vinegar.
  4. Set aside until ready to eat.
  5. Tear in as much basil as you can.
  6. Voila.

What a wonderful salad. You just can't beat the combination of tomatoes and olives (I used a combination of green and black olives). Yummmmm. Thanks for sharing, Syrah. This is the BEST!!!
