This was delicious, served for labor day. Followed the recipe pretty close, I had Kalamata olives in the fridge so that's what I used. Also had candied jalapeno's and pickled red onions which I wanted to use up, which were a wonderful addition. I think regular red onions and pickled okra as called for would be just as tasty. I loved it because you could make it ahead and was a healthy appetizer. Will make again.
