  • SERVINGS: Makes eight 1/4-cup servings
  • FAST

The Good News Chef Tim Cushman's bright, briny salsa, full of vitamin E–rich olives, is more like a crunchy tapenade. It's delicious over white fish like hake.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  3. 1 cup finely diced celery (3 ribs)
  4. 1 cup finely chopped pitted green olives (5 ounces)
  5. 2 tablespoons capers, chopped
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  1. In a small skillet, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until golden, about 2 minutes. Let the oil cool, then discard the garlic. Transfer the oil to a bowl and add the celery, olives, capers and mint. Toss the salsa, season with pepper and serve.
