Ingredients of a vinaigrette
A can of pitted black or green olives
Virgin olive oil
Preparation of a vinaigrette
Peel, wash and finely chop the shallots.
Leave them to marinate in salt and vinegar for half an hour.
Chop pickles and olives in very small pieces (if they are not laminated) and leave them apart together with a a little oil.
Drain the shallots to remove the vinegar and salt.
Mix all ingredients and rectify (if necessary) with the remaining salt and vinegar.
Pour a vinaigrette over salad and serve any.
You can do this recipe either with black olives or with the green ones. If the salad has lettuce, so that the sauce stands out more, we can use the black sauce to give an extra touch of color.
If a vinaigrette has to be used for dishes made with tomato, pasta, rice or vegetables, we can use both, green or black olives.
