Background: My friend Shelley made these olives at a party I attended at her house! I asked for the recipe and she said her Mom, Dian had been making them since she was a kid and everyone loved them. Well I loved them and haven't stopped making them. They are great on a cheese platter as an appetizer or as a side dish at dinner. Enjoy these easy, tasty olives. xo
