Top Review by jimani

I live in the middle of nowhere where "olive bars" are unheard of. I have tried other recipes for marinated olives with less than good results. THIS recipe, however, shines!! It is better than any olive bar olive and certainly better than other recipes I have tried. I think it is because of the method. Heating the oil and then the olives really brings up the flavor. Thank you so much for posting. I highly recommend this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm the olive oil in a frying pan with the rosemary sprigs, garlic, bay leaves and oregano and cook gently, stirring for 5 minutes to infuse the oil.
  2. Add the olives and toss well to coat in the spiced oil, then cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 5 – 10 minutes until soft and shiny.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to transfer olives, garlic, bay leaves and herbs to a rustic serving dish and serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
