Citrus Marinated Olives

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by Scoutie

This is great as an appetizer or to take along on a picnic, the flavors really meld together well. The green olives really shine with the citrus flavor, so I use 2 cups green olives and 1 cup Kalamata olives. I double the garlic, orange peel and add 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme. The cooking time is the marinading time. This is adpated from Bon Appetit magazine, July 2000.

Loved this recipe and the longer you leave it the better it gets, I added extra garlic but it really didn't need it. Thanks for this, will be using often. Made for ZWT6
