949. Iraqi Marinated Olives


A stunning starter, an eye-rolling main dish, and a decadent dessert are all wonderful, but what really makes a meal over-the-top are the small touches. The kind that one’s hand always reaches for while the head is turned away in conversation. Pre-meal nut nibbles. Side-note pickles. Accompanying bowls of caramel sauce.These marinated olives fit into that category. Plain brined olives are jazzed up in an oil-based mixture of spices, herbs, and garlic, then jarred and refrigerated until needed. Keeps wonderfully well covered and refrigerated for a good while.



500g brined olives, drained

1 tsp dried thyme

1/2 cup chopped parsley

8 cloves garlic, grated

1 tsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 cup olive oil

1/4 cup vinegar





Mix all the ingredients except the olives in a large bowl.

Toss in the olives to fully coat.

Store refrigerated in an air-tight jar.
