Spicy Zesty Olives

This is a quick and easy recipe for marinated olives.  I love to mix different types of olives to add color and flavours. 
Make sure you use high quality olive oil to really increase the beautiful olive flavor of this dish. 
These olives are perfect to complement a cheese and cured meat platter or can be added to a salad for a little spicy touch.
