These are a must for every party at my house. I serve them from a stemmed martini glass.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound assorted olives (kalamata, Cerignola, Sicilian, and Niçoise are some of my favorites)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt, if needed

Method

Drain the olives and turn them into a bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients except the sea salt. Toss to combine. Taste for seasonings before adding any sea salt, as olives can be salty.
