Do you ever find yourself having to make a recipe as soon as you see it? I was reading Gooseberry Patch 101 Easy Entertaining Recipes and had to make these Super Easy Marinated Olives as soon as I read the recipe. Thankfully I had everything the recipe called for in the house. These Marinated Olives are so dang easy to make! I had them ready to go and in the fridge marinating within a few minutes.
John came home and started snacking on them as soon as he found them in the fridge. Thankfully I had already taken a couple of pictures so I could share them on the blog. He has been sneaking them out of the fridge every chance he gets. He added them to a sandwich and said they were a great addition.
These Marinated Olives would make a great holiday gift! They would look great in a sealed jar with a couple of wooden spoons or serving forks attached to the jar. I may have to make some of these up for our foodie friends that I know would love them.
