So easy, So Good! I almost always have olives on hand but I never thought of doing anything else with them. I think I might well keep a jar of these wee wonders in the fridge all the time now.
Made for the Goddesses of ZWT-9 -- For the most part, I try to make recipes as written as a simple matter of rating fairness, but your recipe kept whispering ideas to my creative nature. The 1st whisper was heard as I was slicing the lemon & I answered it by adding lemon zest. The 2nd whisper said "I think some sweet red onion would be great w/these olives", so finely-diced red onion was added. Lastly, "The Whisperer" asked "Hmm - What do you think about some capers? ... & I firmly replied aloud "You may be right & I'll mention it, but we're done chg'ing Paula's recipe for now." These tasty babes were served w/Greek Bread (Abm), #272872 by Annacia & a lightly-creamed soup that cleaned the fridge of all the leftovers -- A yummy meal! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
Magnificent! These made great gifts, instead of placing in a large jar I did three smaller jars one for us and two to give away with some pretty little instruction cards and the herbs and lemon in a bag so that all my friends had to do was mix and enjoy. Thanks for the great post.
Yum! I love olives and lemon so I knew I would love this recipe before I even tried it. Served with a large amount of mezze's. Thanks so much Paula G for a wonderful recipe.
Had a container of mixed olives with just a tad of feta from Costco. There was NO flavor, just packed in olive oil. I added all of Paula's ingredients, plus 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes, and by the next day -- they were lovely and flavorful ! Taking them to a crab feast with our local connection to their family in Sicily, who hosted an unforgettable dinner for us ! I will happily prepare this again, soon. Thanks for posting, Paula !
This olive recipe is really easy and produced great tasting olives. I made these for the ~ZWT9~ Parting Gifts Challenge for team Tasty Testers. I packaged the olives in small 2 ounce jars to be handed out as gifts. Thank you PaulaG. I will definitely make these again as they are a great accompaniment to salads.
Loved the flavors! A nice mix, thanks for the recipe. :)
