These olives are the perfect appetizer for all your holiday gatherings!
Whether it’s for a co-worker potluck or a quaint soiree with friends, everyone will devour them. Be sure to make a double batch!
We start with 2 cans of California pitted green olives, drained
Heat a cast iron skillet with a tablespoon olive oil
Pour in the drained olives
Zest one lemon and crush a few cloves of garlic and set aside
After 5 minutes, the olives should be heated and charred…causing the skins to blister a bit
Toss in the crushed garlic and lemon zest and stir for about 1 more minute, making sure the garlic does not burn
Pour onto a serving platter and top with more lemon zest
Pile them high! See why I told you a double batch is needed?
Can you just smell them now? Divine!
Here is the recipe for you…
