I don't mind getting into the kitchen, I just don't want to be there all day. I would rather be mingling with my dinner guests or spending quality time with my family then working on complicated dishes. I'm all for simple appetizers, for instance, that only call for a few simple ingredients. You can easily impress with fuss free appetizers.
So, I've come up with two easy appetizers using delicious Olives from Spain . When something is going to be the main feature of your dish, you want to make sure it's high quality and you can't beat olives straight from Spain. I used both their green and black varieties in my appetizer recipes and they were both so good. Full disclosure, I'm a total olive fanatic. I'd be happy eating them straight from the jar, but it's even better when I can work them into dishes...
- green olives
- red pepper
- olive oil
1. Chop the olives and pepper. No need to get fancy. A rough chop will do!
2. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Drizzle with olive oil.
4. Mix it all together and enjoy.
This relish would go great on top of chicken or fish, but would also be fabulous as as a dip. You could serve it with baked tortilla chips or even pitas.
Rustic Olive Toast
- black olives
- Asiago cheese
- multi-grain bread
1. Slice the multi-grain bread in threes.
2. Chop the olives.
3. Butter the bread slices.
3. Top the bread with a the cheese and a sprinkling of olives.
4. Broil for 3 or 4 minutes and enjoy.
These would serve as a great starter at your next dinner party no? And they couldn't be easier to prepare!
