The green Sicilian olives from PCC delis make this really special.



In a saucepan, simmer potatoes in water to cover until tender. Drain and cool, then peel and dice.

In a large sauté pan on medium-low heat, add 1/3 cup olive oil, onions, capers and olives. Cook for 1 minute; add peppers and eggplant. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring often.

In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and tomatoes. Bring to boil, then simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.

Add potatoes and tomatoes to the saucepan with cooked vegetables, adding a pinch of salt. Turn off the heat and let sit for 30 minutes for the flavors to develop. Serve warm or at room temperature with crusty bread.

Sicilian Caponata

This is a keeper. Easy to make, attractive, healthy blend of ingredients, absolutely delicious olives. It could have been more flavorful, however, so I rated it 3 of 5 stars. It had no seasonings beyond salt and pepper, and perhaps some hot peppers or something might have made it great.
