The longer these olives marinate, the more pronounced the flavor.

I can't believe it's taken me years to realize that olives are best if you drain them and then add olive oil and garlic. Delicious! For my recent party I added black olives also, and put in fresh basil and oregano, just because I had some. These are also very good if you use only olive and garlic.
