Top Review by karen in tbay

Nice change from our usual spicy/garlicky dishes we prepare. I am the only one in the family that loves olives and I loved the variety of the sweet of the prunes and the salt of the olives. I would add more olives then the whole dish would be mine.We didn't have enuf red wine so used the orange juice as suggested.
