Blistered Olives

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…
