Although you can always put Greek olives in a dish and serve them as is, marinating them gives them a whole new dimension! This is a popular meze dish that is served all over Greece and even though recipes from region to region or family to family could differ, they all have the same main idea – to make Greek olives taste even better than they do!

Marinated Greek Olives Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Greek olives, such as Kalamata
  • 1/2 cup Greek olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried Greek oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons chopped, fresh orange peel
  • 1/2 cup Greek olive oil

Instructions to Make Marinated Olives:

Place several paper towels on the counter and place the olives on top. Blot the olives with more paper towels to remove some of the brine.

Add the olives to a bowl and cover with olive oil. Toss in the oregano, rosemary, and orange peel. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours and up to one week before serving.

When ready to serve, place in a serving bowl with all the seasonings and oil. You may add more olive oil just before serving so that people can dip their bread into it.
