These tasty marinated cheese and olives make a great appetizer to serve with crackers or a crusty baguette, or top a salad. And they're a quick-fix food item, perfect for gift giving: tie filled preserve jars with pretty plaid ribbon and attach a small serving fork, et voila! From Southern Livings 'Big Book of Christmas', November 2010. Tip: For best results, use a white vinegar dressing, not red.
