22 ounces (about 4 cups) assorted olives (such as nicoise, arbequina, kalamata, and picholine)
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup finely chopped fennel bulb
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate 48 hours. Serve at room temperature.
A mix of fruity and meaty olives works well in this recipe. They are ideal for cocktail platters, antipasto, snacking, or as a gift when placed in a decorative jar. You can refrigerate the olives for up to a month.
