The Good News Chef Tim Cushman's bright, briny salsa, full of vitamin E–rich olives, is more like a crunchy tapenade. It's delicious over white fish like hake.

  • 1 cup finely diced celery (3 ribs)
  • 1 cup finely chopped pitted green olives (5 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons capers, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • Freshly ground pepper
