I LOOOVE olives.  as does my child.  She would literally eat 10 of them if I would let her.  I made this the other night to go on some grilled Cod.  It was super tasty!  The bitter capers mixed with the salty olives and sweet basil leaves made such a wonderful flavor combination.  Make it and enjoy.  It takes no time at all and is a perfect topping for any grilled seafood and I also think it would be great on chicken.
