Olives are great to serve with drinks before dinner. Of course, you can just buy good olives, put them in a dish and stop there. If you want something sensational, go the extra step and make these Moroccan Olives. They can be made ahead and stored for up to 4 months.
You might be tempted to omit the vanilla but don’t. The combination of vanilla and all the spices creates a kind of magical perfume that make these olives spectacular. —At Home with Friends
