Almond Stuffed Green Olives

Almond Stuffed Olives6

Okay it’s official. I’m addicted to olives. I have decided to give up searching them down in the stores and I am just going to make my own. Today I’m starting with green olives stuffed with almonds. I tried these in spain and I just completlely fell in love with these. I simply purchased a large jar of green olives, removed the pit, inserted the almond and marinated them in half brine and half olive oil. I recommend using Marcona Almonds because they are skinless. These yummy olives work as a great appetizer or snack to keep handy in your fridge.
