I always thought olives were fairly useless. Turns out I may have been wrong.
I have been eating a lot of bread with olive oil and cheese lately. The groceries here in Brazil have a freshly baked bread that is pretty good. I like to eat it with a salad but the onions in my salad seem to add little flavor and serve more as decoration or a method where in I can say I am not just eating lettuce. Thus I was stimulated to make the onions do more.
- Sautee onions with olive oil. When translucent add a sprinkle of cilantro. Then let cool.
- Put sauteed onions on top of lettuce and add lemon juice and all the oil from your pan.
This changed eating my salads from a chore into a real pleasure.
