Olive lovers delight! I was looking for a "little something extra" to bring along to a small dinner party. This looked very easy so I tried it without reading the reviews. I was not very happy with their appearance - the parmesan is not very attractive when mixed with the oil as it sits on the black olives. BUT, they tasted delicious and were a big hit once someone took the plunge and tried them. I served them 2 ways -- as the recipe states and also with some added green olives, just for color. I added extra large pimento stuffed green olives and garlic stuffed olives (store bought, from a jar). I think this looked a bit more appetizing than the plain black olives, and appealed to those who were not black olive lovers.


These olives are so yummy, next time I will marinate them overnight instead of only an hour.


These were really good. Every night, except the evenings that the kids and I are at dance, hubby and I sit for our "cocktail hour" and chat while dinner is cooking. Drew loves to "pick" and he also loves olives, so I thought this would be a nice little treat. I chilled these overnight to enhance the flavors and we really loved them. So did the kids Jake and thanks!
