Print Friendly
GreenOliveDipNeed a quick dip this holiday season? Serve this "with a platter of crudités, alongside crackers or bread, or, sometimes as a topping for grilled fish," suggests author David Leite in "The New Portuguese Table." Green Olive Dip 1/3 cup whole milk 6 oil-packed anchovy fillets 1 small garlic clove, smashed Leaves and tender stems of 6 fresh cilantro sprigs, divided use Pinch of freshly ground white pepper 3/4 cup vegetable oil 2/3 cup pitted green olives, such as Manzanilla, rinsed quickly if particularly salty, roughly chopped [amazon-product]0307394417[/amazon-product]Add the milk, anchovies, garlic, two thirds of the cilantro, and the pepper to a blender and pulse to combine. With the motor running, pour in the oil in what the Portuguese call a fio, or fine thread. Keep whirring until the oil is incorporated and the mixture thickens, 30 to 40 seconds. Scrape the dip into a serving bowl and stir in the olives. Mince the remaining cilantro, sprinkle on top and serve. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. From "The New Portuguese Table" by David Leite
