Picholine Olives With Roasted Garlic and Red Onion

This recipe is from "Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook."

  • yield: Makes 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Picholine olives (8 to 10 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon mixed (red, white, green) peppercorns, slightly crushed

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place olives in a medium bowl; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook just until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer garlic to a paper towel to drain, and let cool; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Bring 2 tablespoons vinegar and red onion to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat; reduce by half to 1 tablespoon. Add remaining 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup vinegar, bay leaves, and peppercorns; bring to a simmer. Stir in garlic. Pour warm mixture over olives, and marinate at room temperature for at least 2 hours. Olives may be made 1 week ahead, and refrigerated in an airtight container. Return to room temperature before serving.
