This is a really simple side I like to serve with pasta dishes such as lasagne or spaghetti. Make sure you get some good quality olives, oil and balsamic for this! Its best to make this early and place in the fridge for an hour or so to let the flavours develop.
Olive and Artichoke Salad
1 cup green olives
1 cup black olives
1 can artichoke, rinsed, drained and sliced
½ large red onion, thinly sliced
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp agave nectar
¼ tsp pink himalayan salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Combine the olives, artichoke, onion and tomatoes in a bowl. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and stir into salad. Make sure everything is well coated in the dressing and place in fridge until ready to serve.
