Citrus Marinated Olives-from Diabetic Cooking
This recipe is easily cut in half and use whatever olives you'd like, they do show pitted ones though.
1 C (or 8 oz) large green olives, drained
1 C kalamata olives, rinsed and drained-I made a half recipe and only used green olives this time
1/3 C extra virgin olive oil
1/4 C orange juice
3 Tblsp sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar-I used red wine
2 Tblsp lemon juice
1 Tblsp grated orange peel-They pulled off long strips instead of using a zester-pretty!
1 Tblsp grated lemon peel-Same as with the orange peel...
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- Combine everything in glass bowl. Let stand over night at room temperature, then refrigerate for up to two weeks.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
