Black Olive Vinaigrette

Yield: Yields scant 1 cup.

Because of the saltiness of the anchovies and olives, no other salt is necessary in this vinaigrette. The vinaigrette tastes best when prepared at least one day in advance.


  • 3 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry, and finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. minced shallots
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pitted Niçoise or Kalamata olives, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
