Author Notes: Throwing a dinner party? The customary bowl of mixed olives could use a little dressing up.

In this recipe, shaved fennel adds a crunchy, refreshing bite to the olives, while the lemon zest and chili pepper liven things up, and the fennel greens make the dish colorful and festive.

Makes 2 cups

  • 1/2 small fennel bulb
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fennel greens
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red chili pepper flakes or 1 small fresh cayenne chili pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 pounds mixed olives
