Simply pour warm aromatic oil over a selection of olives to infuse them with loads of flavor fast. These olives are a wonderful easy party appetizer--add any leftovers to salads or simply snack on them.
Combine oil, garlic, lemon zest and crushed red pepper in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic begins to sizzle, 3 to 5 minutes.
Place olives in a serving bowl. Pour the warm oil over them.
To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 week. Bring to room temperature before serving.
