Olive lovers delight! I was looking for a "little something extra" to bring along to a small dinner party. This looked very easy so I tried it without reading the reviews. I was not very happy with their appearance - the parmesan is not very attractive when mixed with the oil as it sits on the black olives. BUT, they tasted delicious and were a big hit once someone took the plunge and tried them. I served them 2 ways -- as the recipe states and also with some added green olives, just for color. I added extra large pimento stuffed green olives and garlic stuffed olives (store bought, from a jar). I think this looked a bit more appetizing than the plain black olives, and appealed to those who were not black olive lovers.

One or two was enough for everyone who tried these. Next time I'll add them to a pasta salad. I think it will be great! Thanks!

These olives are so yummy, next time I will marinate them overnight instead of only an hour.

These were really good. Every night, except the evenings that the kids and I are at dance, hubby and I sit for our "cocktail hour" and chat while dinner is cooking. Drew loves to "pick" and he also loves olives, so I thought this would be a nice little treat. I chilled these overnight to enhance the flavors and we really loved them. So did the kids Jake and thanks!

My husband loves black olives so I thought I would make these for him as a treat. He absolutely loved them. I am not a black olive fan, so I didn't even try them. I will go by what he says... "5 stars"

My husband is a picky eater. He as well as myself found this recipe to be delicious. We enjoy it at parties,etc. on french bread toasted and cut to cracker size. If you do this the olives need to be sliced. Also very good with green olives. Thanks for this recipe.

Very good but those that don't like a lot of garlic won't like these.

Great little cocktail goodie, Jake. We served this with drinks before going to the symphony. Yummy!
