Spicy Marinated Black Olives

“ZWT7, Italy. Marinated to piquant perfection, these olives are far from ordinary. To fully develop the flavor of garlic in the recipe, it is best to allow the olives to marinate for at least several days before serving. Olives spiced with chillies make a delicious mezze dish in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan & Turkey. They are often served with cubes of firm salted white cheese that is either drizzled with olive oil or fried such as, Saganaki (fried Cheese) Greek Style. Haloom cheese is particularly good for this.
