    I love olives and found this salad amazing. It was a great hit. It also gives a change to the summer picnic table.

    I made this salad for a buffet and everyone loved it. My Mom who loves green olives and my brother who loves black olives especially enjoyed it. Don't make too much, a little goes a long way.
