Really easy to prepare, this is one of the dishes I make when I want to reduce some calories and go healthy. The only secret: quality ingredients, especially the olive oil. The more flavorful it is, the less you will have to use.

–       You can use green olives instead of black olives, but they add a more acidic flavour.
