Olive Salsa Recipe: Why Add Olives To Salsa?

Why add olives to salsa? Because June 1st is National Olive Day.

Olives add another layer of flavor—tangy and piquant—to the sweetness of the tomatoes, the bite of the raw onion, and the heat of the chile spice(s).

This recipe from DeLallo shows how easy it is.

There’s also an easy hack: Add sliced or quartered olives to store-bought salsa.

Note that since salsa means sauce in Spanish, olive salsa is also a sauce made from chopped olives. Here’s a recipe.
 
 
RECIPE: OLIVE SALSA

This recipe is for a red salsa, but you can also add olives to salsa verde.

You can also use the salsa as a sauce or a condiment with chicken, fish, lamb, pork and vegetables.

For this recipe, DeLallo used their Piccante Green Pitted Olives, which are blended with hot chile flakes.

If you prefer black olives to green olives, make the switch!
