• Not an olive person. But if I was, this certainly looks easy enough to do.

    • Hi Cheryl, I get that. If you know someone who is I’m certain they would enjoy this recipe. 🙂

  • It’s not even 9:00 on a Sunday morning, and these olives sounds absolutely wonderful! Can’t wait to give them a try.

    • Hi Gae-Lynn, Welcome. They really are good and oh so easy to make. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Why pitted? Is it just for easy of use?

    • Hi Jon, Pitted olives allow the marinade to permeate throughout the olives more quickly. I’ve tried it with pitted and this is much better. 🙂

  • I think that this will be a nice bit of *flare* for my holiday table! ~Krisha

    • Hi Krisha, That is cool. It’s always a welcome addition to our holiday fare. 🙂

  • Never knew one could re-pickle an olive…this I will try

    • Hi, Olives have so many fun and easy recipes. I know you’ll like this one. Enjoy.

  • Stephanie Ruby Feldman

    Will share this one with the hubby, he is the one who adores olives!

    • Hi Stephanie, That is so cool. I hope he has fun with this recipe. 🙂

  • My husbands family is going to love me at Christmas!!!!

    • Hi Rebecca, That made me laugh and made me SOOO happy that I can do that for you. 🙂

  • I’m an olive fiend. And I love pickled onions, so I have a feeling I’d be snacking on those, too, even though they’re meant for flavoring. Pitted unstuffed green olives are a little hard to find in cans or jars, but they show up on olive bars pretty often.

    • Hi Donna, Me too. I know you’ll enjoy these. I buy the pimento stuffed olive and take the pimento out when I can’t locate the unstuffed ones. Or if I’m really lazy I just use the pimento stuffed ones as is… LOL 🙂

  • I love Olives. These sound great. Be nice with either garlic or rosemary in there too. Not sure where to find the pitted ones that are not flavorless. But now I’ll look harder.

    • Hi A.K. I do too. I have a few olive recipes that are really good and so fun to make. This is one of them. Good luck finding the olives. 🙂

  • Olives are something I’ve always liked and have wanted to experiment with and try more of, so this EASY recipe is most welcome!

    • Hi Jeri, Then you will enjoy this recipe on two levels, taste and how easy it is to make. Enjoy. 🙂

  • My local deli has so many varieties of olives but they don’t have them with garlic. Thanks for the recipe Susan as although I don’t particularly like olives I will be serving this up to friends who do. Hope your contest is going well.

    • Hi Susan, Your olive loving friends will enjoy this recipe. 🙂

      The contest has been a great deal of fun. It has surprised me how well it has been received. It has done VERY well and I’m only 2/3’s of the way through. :)))

  • It can’t be easier than that. I eat olives every week.

    • Hi Patrick, It certainly isn’t. we love olives too, and always have an olive recipe of some kind on hand. 🙂

  • Lisa J. Jackson

    I love black olives, but have never taken to green ones. The recipe only mentions the green, but the picture seems to show both green and black. Is it possible to just use the black ones? Different flavor, I know. This is another nice and simple recipe and I know my parents love olives so I’ll give this a try for their anniversary and see if they like it. 🙂

    • Hi Lisa, Crap, there was a mistake in the recipe. I just made the adjustment and added the black olives. I have never used just black olives but it would be worth a try. If you do try only black olives let me know how it turned out. 🙂

    Yummy! I love olives of any kind and often serve them with cheese as an appetizer. This is another winner Susan! Thanks!

  • Sounds perfect Susan. I love olives even tho for some it’s an aquifer taste. Having good olives makes all the difference.

  • Catarina Alexon

    Your marinated garlic olives sound, and look, absolutely delicious, Susan. And the receipe doesn’t contain anything that has/can have a negative impact on the thyroid gland. That’s unusual because most almost everything is bad for the thyroid.

  • Oh my goodness! This recipes has a few of my favorite things! How can you go wrong?

  • Susan — I love olives, green, black, Italian, you name it. I don’t like onions, particularly raw onions (I can eat them if they’ve been incinerated in a recipe). Have you any ideas of substitutes for raw onions in a recipe?

  • This looks great, Susan! I love the idea of adding red olives. We have done a similar appetizer years ago but didn’t add red onions. I will have to try it again.

  • I love anything to do with olives. They are such a magical food. And how nicely they go with wine & cheese. These sound divine, Susan. I’ve gad garlic stuffed olives, but never had a recipe that includes red onions with the olives. Sounds good!

    We’ll be going to Pittsburgh’s Strip District–old fashioned market area–Saturday and I’ve added olives to the list so I can give these a whirl. Love olives in all their forms. Yum!

  • I never cared for olives until my three year old grandson told me the black ones were yummy. Since then I’ve had to agree that he was right. He is now almost 8, still loves black olives and I think it would be fun to make up this recipe to share with him. 🙂

    Sounds delicious! I am a huge olive fan. Green ones. Black ones. Seed or no seed. I am game for whatever. The only one’s I don’t like are the ones that have a pepper instead of pimento.
