Recipe by Sommer Clary

Olives are abundant in Moroccan cuisine; often times they are marinated in olive oil and lemon, or in a Moroccan hot sauce called "harissa" (which is made from red chilis, garlic, coriander and cumin). For my olives, I am combining the best of both worlds by marinating the olives in lemon and olive oil, plus some of the seasonings found in harissa.
