From Gourmet Vegetarian Feasts by Martha Rose Shulman
 
  1. Pit 1/2 lb. Provençal olives (or Greek) and mash to a puree with 2 cloves garlic and 2 Tbs. capers, using a mortar and pestle.
  2. Blend in 1/4 t thyme, 1/4 t crushed rosemary, 2 TBS. olive oil, 2 TBS. lemon juice, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard and black pepper to taste.
  3. Chill
This is traditionally from the South of France. Anchovies are usually in it.  You could add them at the end a little at a time until you get the flavor you want.  The same with an herbed vinegar.
