I love olives in just about any form. Because of that, it was suggested that I add this Easy Marinated Garlic Olives to my blog. This Easy Marinated Garlic Olives recipe, as it is with most of the recipes I’ve showcased, is SUPER easy. It so easy that I call it my “add, shake and you’re done” kind of recipe. This also makes a great gift for anyone who loves olives.
Marinated Garlic Olives
- 1 7 oz jar unstuffed pitted green olives, drained
- 1 7 oz can of extra large pitted black olives drained
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 small red onion, sliced
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
- 2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
Place all the ingredients in a glass jar. Cover tightly and shake until the ingredients a blended.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. They can be kept refrigerated for up to a month. Drain before serving.
Note: If you can’t find the unstuffed green olives, just remove the pimento, and you’re ready to go. You can use other types of vinegar if you desire, I just like the clean taste of the cider vinegar with the olives.
Now, how easy is that! This is an easy recipe to throw together for a picnic, potluck or family gathering. Make a double batch because they won’t last long. As I said before, they also make great gifts from your kitchen packaged in cute little jars with a bit of raffia or ribbon and a tag. Enjoy.
