Beirut Olives

by

Yield: 12 to 18 servings as part of an antipasto platter

The preparation for these lemon-zingy olives originated in Lebanon, where lemons infuse practically every dish. You can make them up to a week ahead of time. The recipe calls for green or black olives, but if you can find them, add torpedo-shaped, purple, or other olives imported from the Mediterranean.
