Kicked Up Almond Stuffed Green Olives

  • Yield: About 1 1/2 cups


  • 1 1/2 cups pitted large green olives*
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried hot pepper flakes


  • Stuff the olives with the almonds. In a glass bowl combine all the ingredients and stir well to mix. Marinate the olive mixture, at room temperature, stirring occasionally, for up to 1 day, before serving (the almonds will soften after several hours).
  • *If olives are canned or from a jar, rinse and drain well first
