Peppered Olives

READY IN: 20mins

Here's a great idea as well as a delicious one! So easy you don't even have to turn your stove or oven on! If you don't have Meyer lemons, a regular lemon will do. These go fast, so you might want to double the recipe!

Delicious - I wouldn't change a thing. Since I didn't have Meyer lemons, I used regular, and I sliced them very thinly. These were a big hit!
