Marinated Olives With Lemon and Fresh Herbs

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CookinDiva

Many grocery stores now carry bulk olives. I buy large bulk green olives, with pits, and dress them up with this flavor-packed marinade. It's a wonderful appetizer during the summer when fresh herbs are plentiful. Serve with wine and cheese for a wonderful summertime appetizer.

Loved the big green olives. Easy simple recipe with tons of flavor. I marinated the day before and then I actually heated mine up to serve. It was for my LEMON PARTY and we had other cold dishes and I have had warm olives before and always enjoyed them, so I just heated slightly at they were a hit. However they were awesome cold too. I did add just a bit more olive oil probably just another teaspoon, but I could put in a few extra olives too. It was just perfect. I'll be making it again for sure. Thx for a great easy, delish post.
