Garlic Olives

Last week I found an interesting recipe while perusing one of my Italian cookbooks. It was entitled "Garlic Olives". It was a very simple recipe and looked delicious. I've included the recipe at the end of this post for those of you who would like to try it!

Garlic Olives
1 can(7 ounces) large pitted ripe olives, undrained
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (I did not add this to mine)
1-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves

Turn olives and their liquid into a quart jar with tight-fitting lid. Add vinegar and rest of ingredients; cover tightly and shake well. Refrigerate several days, shaking jar occasionally. Drain just before serving. Makes about 36.
