  • add   2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • add   1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • add   1 cup olive oil
  • add   1/8-1/4 fluid ounce sherry wine vinegar
  • add   1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • add   1/2 cup sweet california chili powder
  • add   2 lbs green Sicilian olives


  1. Place Sicilian green olives in a resealable plastic bag, hit with mallet
  2. or hammer to crack the olives. Add olive oil, chili powder, parsley, garlic and vinegar. Mix well
  3. and serve.
  4. I find it easier to crack olives wrapped in a kitchen towel vs the plastic bag method.
