• 3/4 cup California Black Ripe Olives, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped frozen green peas
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red pepper
  • 2 drops red pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 finely chopped plum tomato
  • 1 teaspoon spicy mustard


Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well. For a smooth texture, place all ingredients, unchopped, in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Garnish with a parsley sprig and an olive. Makes about 1 cup. Note: for spicier taste, add more red pepper sauce. For middle eastern flavor, add curry powder. For a southwestern flair, add chili or cayenne pepper.
