I made these on new years but i didn't care for dried herbs in it.Made it over the weekend with fresh herbs much better.
I LOVE these. i did add a bit more EVOO than was called for cause i like it like that.
This was good. I used olives stuffed with garlic, ones stuffed with jalapenos and pitted kalamata (I get carried away and always bite into the pit otherwise). The flavors were there, just make sure you use a really good olive oil.
These are great! And super easy. I used a jar each of green and kalamata olives from Trader Joes. I didn't slice the garlic, but minced it, so mine was a little more garlicy than the recipe calls for. YUM! They do look nice on a white serving plate. I found a funky shaped one at the thrift store just for this recipe! These were a big hit with the olive lovers over the holidays... And the leftovers are mine, all mine. :)
Our family is divided when it comes to olives some love them as do I- for some I leave them out ... love that this recipe is one I can make for those of us who love those olives! Served these warm, they look very appealing on a white serving dish and created one lot of interest. Had a few left over and found I enjoyed the spiced up olives cold and will make these up and do just that next time around ... likely for New Years Day. Thank you Elly.
this is a quick tasty way to dress up olives. i used kalamatas, pitted, and green olives stuffed with feta cheese. i liked the flavor from the lemon zest and fresh herbs.
