  • 1 cup of brined or pickled veggies (Use your favorite olives, pepperoncinis, artichoke hearts, etc.)⁠

What To Do

  • Add your olive oil, black pepper, and Mountain Joy to a small pan and heat on low for 2 minutes. Be careful not to fry or burn the seasonings.

  • Pour the entire contents of the pan to a mixing bowl and add the other ingredients except for the balsamic vinegar. ⁠
