  1. Step 1

    Wash the mallow very well several times in a large bowl of water. Drain thoroughly. Finely chop the leaves, place them in a steamer, and steam over simmering water for 15 to 20 minutes, until the leaves darken and are tender.
  2. Step 2

    Squeeze out any excess liquid from the steamed mallow, and transfer the mallow to a skillet. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the olives), stir to mix, and saute over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes until the parsley is wilted and the flavors have blended. Adjust seasoning if desired.
  3. Step 3

    Serve warm or at room temperature, garnishing the salad with the olives and preserved lemon rinds.
