Simmered Chili Olives

READY IN: 9hrs
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

A short simmer in some tomato-garlic-pepper seasoning does wonders for the ordinary olive! Serve at room temperature for a unique addition to a relish tray. Prep time includes cooling overnight.

The olives turned out beautifully! Looks so pretty with the different olives and the red of the tomato. Olives, garlic (yes, I added extra- about 3 or 4 cloves), tomato, spicy red pepper... delicious flavors all combined. I have to say, we ate a bunch of them and then decided to do a rough chop and mix it in with freshly cooked angel hair pasta, and it made a fantastic pasta dish as well!
