Mediterranean Dressing

I love having a jar of this ‘deli mix’ in the fridge to toss through salad greens, stir into pasta or couscous or serve on grilled steak, chicken or a meaty fish like tuna.


Prep time 15 mins

Serves 8


• ½ cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

• ¼ cup semi-dried tomatoes, chopped

• 2 tbsp capers, chopped

• ¼ small red onion, very finely sliced

• ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

• ¼ cup boutique extra virgin olive oil

• 2 tsp red wine or sherry vinegar

• finely grated zest of 1 lemon

• 2 tbsp lemon juice

• salt and ground black pepper, to taste


Mix or shake together all ingredients in a bowl or jar. Store covered in the fridge for up to a week.
