Spiced Olives

Spiced OlivesComing from a big Greek family, this finger-food classic is my favorite holiday hor' devour. This simple and quick recipe is perfect for the whole family. Place these Spiced Olives out at your next holiday table, but be warned, people will be begging for the recipe.

  • 2 medium garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 Tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 1/4 tsp finely grated zest (peel)
  • 2 tsp juice from a lemon
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups pimento-stuffed olives, drained

Place garlic, parsley and Herbs de Provence in the work bowl of a food processor; process until finely minced. Add lemon zest and juice, olive oil and olives; pulse until olives are chopped to fine-gravel texture. Transfer to a serving bowl or storage container. Serve with pita chips or plain crackers.
