Kalamata Olives With Lemon and Anisette

READY IN: 72hrs 5mins
Recipe by ellie_

These are great as appetizers as part of a vegetable or condiment tray. Although it only takes five minutes to put everything together they need to marinate for 3 days before serving. Cooking time is marinating time (3 days). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (June 1984)
