    Fabulous, Evelyn. I must say, I started it in slight despair, having got a whole tub of pitted kalamatas which turned out to be a little bitter. So, I was looking for a disguise. It was way better than I ever expected, and I'd even use the same olives again.

    This is really great! I have used a combination of canned green & black olives in place of the kalamata olives and it is still one of my favorite recipes. My sister insists that I bring it to the Thanksgiving dinner each year.

    WOW! I can't believe only two other people have reviewed this recipe. This might just be my favorite new appetizer. It went together so quickly and tasted great immediately. I'm trying to wait the entire 5 hours before I eat it but I'm not sure I'll make it. I can't wait to serve this to friends! Thanks for another great recipe Evelyn.

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
