Green Olive Vinegarette-Marinate

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I use to go to an Italian restaurant near my old apartment and they always served there salads with green olives. Just by adding these gave a wonderful flavor to the salads. For that reason I always added green olives to my salads. I thought why not just make my dressing with the olives. This is my vinegarette I came up with. Not only great on salads but makes a great marinate for chicken or steaks.The best on antipastas and greek pitas. Lasts refrigerated for weeks!
Hope You enjoy!
