I needed to make a side dish for a potluck and didn't have time to run to the grocery store. Used what I had on hand and it turned out pretty good and there wasn't any left at the end of the evening. I LOVE olives and feta of any kind so I was liberal, use as many or as little as you want to fit your tastes. When making this for myself, I will probably add more olives and feta! Number of servings is a guestimate. **Cook time includes 1 hour to chill.
