Why you will love these marinated olives

Easy – there are under ten ingredients and only two steps to this recipe. And once it is made – they are stored into a jar and last up to three to four months in the fridge. The hardest part will be trying not to eat all these marinated olives at once.

Flavour – Garlic and rosemary – need I say more?  This recipe is super flavorful and takes the olives to the next level.

Adaptable – This recipe goes a long way. Once the olives are done marinating, the infused olive oil can be used like regular olive oil and is packed with flavour.

Ingredient Notes

Garlic: It is no secret that I love garlic. And besides the flavour it brings to so many dishes, it has so many health benefits and is loaded with antioxidants. The perfect ingredient to bring these marinated olives to life.

Rosemary: Another ingredient that has a rich source of antioxidants to help boost the immune system! Rosemary is an herb that is very popular in Mediterranean dishes as it is known to be good for the brain.
