Olive Salad Appetizer

Oxmoor House
Use premium Greek or Italian olives for the best flavor results. You can make the salad ahead and store it in the refrigerator, but wait until just before serving to stir in mushrooms. Serve trays of extra olives for your family to nibble on while working in the kitchen.

Note: You can chop the ingredients for this salad in a food processor or mini chopper to save time; however, we prefer the texture and appearance achieved from chopping the ingredients by hand in this recipe.
