Fennel, Green Olive, and Mint Relish

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 2 cups

Servings: 8

This tangy, crunchy relish is a delicious textural contrast to silky salt-roasted fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium fennel bulb (about 3/4 lb.), tough outer layers removed, cut into 1/8-inch dice (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup pitted green olives (like picholine), coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 Tbs. nonpareil (small) capers, rinsed and chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh mint
