Whichever of these two different preparations you choose, be sure to marinate the olives for at least 2 days before setting them out with drinks as part of a meze or tapas table. They will keep very well for up to a week in the refrigerator.
- For the Black Olives:
- 1 pound brine-cured black olives, rinsed of brine
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Olive oil
- For the Green Olives:
- 1 pound brine-cured green olives, rinsed of brine
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 thin orange or lemon zest strips
- Olive oil
Select either the black or green olives to prepare, or prepare both. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, adding olive oil as needed to cover. Toss well to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
