Marinated Olives Dali Style

Salvador Dali was a Spanish original so you wouldn't expect any ordinary embellishment to dishes served in the Gala Cafe at the new Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL.

Restaurateur Steve Westphal and Chef Tyson Grant did not disappoint. These are some of the best marinated olives I've tasted.

Marinated Spanish Queen Olives

1 gallon Queen olives
2 cups extra virgin olive oil
1 TBS. crushed red pepper
2 TBS. fresh thyme, chopped
2 TBS. fresh rosemary, chopped
1 TBS. lemon zest
1 TBS. minced garlic

Drain and dry the olives from the brine they come in.
Mix all other ingredients, add the olives and marinate overnight.

Add these to your Super Bowl menu and watch them disappear.

  1. Thanks for this recipe - some version of this will find it's way to my Easter brunch table - along with that lovely tortilla!
