Greek marinated olives, marinated in garlic and oregano, which gives them a delicious taste: that's a good snack at the Greek buffet!
Olives, salty taste will become extra flavorful if you marinate them yourself with herbs and spices. For this Greek olives I chose garlic, oregano, lemon and a little pepper. By letting them marinate overnight the olives took this delicious flavors into itself.
An easy-to-make recipe, which is good to pre-prepare and therefore very suitable for our Greek buffet.
- you want to make your guests as easy as possible, use seedless olives. Besides the easy bite, the flavor of the spices will become more intense.
- You want to vary with flavors to add to your olives, you can also add dill, rosemary or mint.
- your oil can't be stored at low temperatures, you store it overnight at room temperature. By heating the oil before pouring in the jar, you can easily make this dish a day in advance and the olives will stay ok.
A day before
- Prepare the olives, let them cool slightly and screw the lid on the jar. Store overnight at room temperature.
