Let's Play Dress-up: Magi Olives

Are you an olive lover?

I am!!

My local grocery store used to have an olive cart that sat in the deli department.

I loved that olive cart: feta cheese stuffed olives, blue cheese stuffed olives, Greek mix olives, olives with garlic, etc.....

But I found out that not everyone loves olives as much as I do. The olive cart was not a top selling item, so they took it away (inside I am silently crying).

But I have found a solution to my long lost olive cart.

These are called Magi Olives.

I ran across this recipe in one of my old magazines and instantly fell in love.

I will create my own olive cart at home.

So let's dress up our olives all you olive lovers out there.....

Magi Olives

2 1/2 c. assorted pitted olives (I used Spanish green and Greek kalamata black olives)
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 TBS grated lemon rind
1/2 TBS fresh lemon juice
1/2 TBS grated orange rind
1 TBS fresh orange juice
1/2 TBS minced garlic
1/2 tsp. fennel seeds
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp. dried oregano

Stir together olives and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill at least 8 hours. Let stand 30 minutes or more at room temperature before serving.

"God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end."
Ecclesiastes 3:11
