Cooking Notes

Buying the pitted olives saves time, but don’t forgo these beauties if all you can find contain pits. It only takes a few extra minutes to pit the olives and this can be done up to 4 days ahead. Then the olives can be refrigerated until you are ready for the salad.

One hothouse cucumber can be used instead of the Kirbys.
