I find myself making these easy little olive nibbles all the time throughout the holidays. They are the perfect addition to a nice cheese board, antipasto or crudité platter. They are crazy simple to make and you won't believe they start as a simple can of black olives.
We all gear up for heavy-duty feasting with the extended family over the holidays, but sometimes the perfect celebration involves a few friends, some delectable nibbles and a nice glass of wine. aaah…I can almost feel the relaxation coming on...
