Rosemary Marinated Olives

The flavour of olives is greatly enhanced by marinating them in fruity olive oil with fresh herbs and citrus juices. When served with colourful chunks of red and yellow bell peppers and little cherry tomatoes, they look and taste fabulous. For the best flavour, allow about 2 days of marinating.
