Olives bring a burst of flavor to many recipes, but even the smallest addition can end up overwhelming the dish.  That’s because olive’s brine is and concentrated and often, it overpowers anything it touches (pasta and mayo especially).  To keep the flavor mild, drain them in a colander and rinse for 20 seconds before adding them to a dish.

  1. I can’t get enough of olives, no need to reduce the flavor or brine.
