From our local newspaper. Extremely important to use the freshest ingredients for this salad! Recipe amounts were not given so they have been estimated. A note about olive brine: I use the liquid that the olives are soaked in either in the package or the fresh ones from the "olive bar" at the natural food store. However I have tried a dirty martini olive juice with much success!
