Test Kitchen Notes

I had the joy of testing these -- the simple ingredients come together in a warm bath of deliciousness. Use your favorite crusty bread to scoop up the olives along with their flavor bath and goat cheese. Whether it is served as an appetizer, light lunch or dinner, it will be devoured by all. Thanks for such a great and easy recipe. —sticksnscones

In This Recipe
  1. On medium heat warm the olive oil and olives together. Stir the olives to make sure they are warmed through (~ 10 mins). Add the lemon zest, thyme, paprika, and lemon juice. Cook until the lemon zest perfumes the kitchen (~3 to 5 mins). Make sure to stir the olives.
