Kalamata Olive love

The other day I jokingly told my sister I wished I could crawl inside a kalamata olive. I was *almost* kidding. I love these things. I probably never even had one until recently, but Dan and I can’t get enough of them! It’s also quite convenient that our food store (attached to our building) has a fresh olive bar that I raid almost daily. This is a recipe Dan and I make at least once a week – usually twice. You can add chicken or feta cheese to it (before I was doing the veg thing, we did this). But it’s even delicious just plain! All you need is:

– About 20 kalamata olives, halved

– Avocado, diced

– Grape tomatoes, halved

– olive oil

– red wine vinegar

– Rice

Put tomatoes & olives into a small frying pan with olive oil and plenty of red wine vinegar. Cook for a few minutes. We then put the olives, tomatoes & avocado over rice (we use rice pilaf, but brown rice would be good too). Add extra red wine vinegar if you are strange like me.

Then, voila! Easiest meal ever!
