It is the art of living we aspire to: friends gathered for drinks and conversation around a generous table, fresh ingredients coaxed into a seductive array of color and texture.
- 1 (16-ounce) jar of olives (with or without seeds), drained
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ½ teaspoon whole peppercorns
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Place all ingredients in a skillet over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until all ingredients are warm and the garlic is slightly cooked. Serve warm.
