Method

  • Process all ingredients except olives, chives and avocado.
  • Add avocado and process till smooth and thickened.
  • Add olives and process briefly so that there are still little pieces.
  • If you wish add more olives to taste and process again.
  • Turn the mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in most of the chives.
  • Adjust seasonings with salt and lemon juice if necessary, but it’s always best to under-salt.
  • Serve garnished with the rest of the chopped chives.
