  • 2 jars large green olives

Spicy Aioli Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream (or plain yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • cayenne pepper to your taste
  • salt and pepper to your taste


  1. Drain and dry large green olives.
  2. Make a dredging station. Place flour, egg wash and panko in a shallow dish of their own. Working small batches, toss dried olives in flour, then toss in egg wash, then toss in panko breadcrumbs.
  3. Shallow pan fry in canola oil until light golden brown. Make sure the oil is hot before adding in all the olives.
  4. Make the dipping sauce: Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking. If you have time, refrigerate for 1 hour before serving to allow flavors to marry and develop.
