If you do not have fresh basil available, pesto will work in a pinch. Add a heaping tablespoon to the olives and taste. Add more as needed. I like to use a mixture of half black and half green olives.
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 16 ounces black olives or 16 ounces green olives
