A wonderful recipe -- quick, easy and tasty. I often make these for holiday gifts or hostess gifts. I once gave them to someone who had only ever tasted canned olives -- she is now a total olive convert!
Marinated Olives with Lemon, Thyme & Rosemary
From EatingWell: March/April 1995
Marinating olives in aromatic herbs and a touch of lemon zest is an ideal way to enhance their flavor. Throughout the Mediterranean, bowls of them are routinely set out as appetizers or as a simple lunch with bread and perhaps some cheese or fruit. While a selection of olives of varying sizes, colors and cures is the most interesting, you can also simply use the one or two kinds most readily available.
