  • 1 cup green olives, pitted if needed, and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 of a red onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley

  • 1 ripe tomato, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
