This salad highlights many fresh flavours of the Mediterranean and is at its best when made with good-quality olive oil. To pit several olives at once, place them on a cutting board and lightly crush with the bottom of a small saucepan to expose pits before removing. Stir this salad lightly with a fork before serving to loosen the pasta.
