Marinated Chilli Olives

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Kate in Katoomba

Perfect as part of an anti-pasto or for when the sun sinks behind the yard arm! Dead easy to make and extremey good. Cooking time does not include marinating time.

These were the hit of a 4th of July picnic. The blend of flavors was excellent; not too spicy-hot and the lemon/cumin flavors were delicious. I'm glad I made a slightly larger batch so I could experiment with marinating time. They were excellent after 24 hours, but the cupful I saved were even better the next day. I think this is a recipe you could keep in the fridge for days, and it would just keep getting better. I'm going to make these a lot, not changing a thing. Thanks!!
