The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a simple recipe to make. The olive dust is so versatile and brings a great salty and umami flavor to almost any dish. You can sprinkle this on something as simple as a hard-boiled egg or a salad, but the dust also works well on top of more complex recipes like pasta dishes or soups.
