Oven-Dried Black-Olive Seasoning

We love to sprinkle this seasoning mix over all manner of salads and pasta dishes, as well as the Ricotta Crostini.

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Arrange olives on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Cook until dried and crisp, about 3 hours. Let cool completely.
