YUM! And I haven't even marinated them yet. Having a tapas party tonight and bet they'll be a hit.

DELICIOUS! (And it is soooo easy to make!) Made it the day before yesterday and enjoyed yesterday, with cubbed cheese and a margarita! My husband also loved. Will be making for when our friends come to have dinner with use. Thanks for such a delicious recipe.

These were divine and were served on New Year's Day. The only thing I left out was the fennel, since I don't care for it. I even took some, wrapped them in a foil packet, and heated in the oven for about 10 minutes, which was really tasty. I will be serving this again! Made for PRMR Tag Game.

What a little gem to pull from the fridge when guests drop in... simple enough to make, yet the olives have a degree of sophistication with the addition of the lemon and fresh herbs that elevate my Costco kalamatas to new heights. The combination of flavours is delicious, and keeps getting better the longer they marinate. I know I will have to make more soon.

I love olives and I love lemon so I knew this recipe would be perfect for me :) I used both green olives and Kalamata olives. Only changes I made was I crushed the garlic and had to leave out the dried pepper flakes so Little Miss (DD) was able to eat it as well. We ate half of the serving, so we have the other half tomorrow which will be marinated for about 12 hours. Thank you BarbryT

Oh my are these good, simple to make and a wonderful blend of flavors. I made these as one of three tapas I served at our Labor Day Picnic and what a hit. The others were Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips abd Dill Dip all differant but the colors and flavors were awesome and I got many compliments. I used both green and black olives, next time think I'll try it with green and kalamatas. Will keep a batch of these in the fridge at all times ready for those drop in guest who need a little snack, or maybe just me and DH to have something to nipple on. Thanks Barby for posting a real winner.

I like these so much that I just keep a sealed jar of them in the fridge and when I get low I make another batch up. They keep very well and are so flavorful and great for a quick little snack. I have also used orange when I was out of lemon! Yum~

Oooh, I just love the lemon flavor in this! I actually squeezed a little lemon juice in. I love the fennel, rosemary, oh this is just full of flavor. Thanks Barb!

Perfect way to use up the 6 jars of olives I had stocked in my kitchen cupboard (each time DH went to buy groceries, he would come back with a jar of green olives even though it was not on the list and green olives are not one of his favourites either!). I added in a generous pinch of dried chilli flakes and let it marinate for a week and they turned out GORGEOUS! DH gave it full marks as well. Thanks, BarbryT, for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
