This is a fun garish that we always keep in the kitchen. I've taken some kalamata olives and chopped them up roughly. After spreading them flat and evenly over a plate lined with a napkin, the olives are placed in a high powered microwave. I cook the olives for about 10 minutes or until they dry out, just keep an eye on them. Once the mixture is cool, we crumble the dust and reserve in a dry space.
