Easy Sicilian marinated olives

Easy Sicilian marinated olives

This is one of my dad’s recipes.

He used to have a green grocers back in the day and had a large bowl of these olives in the fridge that would sell out every day!

his is one of the many lean recipes that I’ve created where flavour and simplicity are key. There are hundreds of lean recipes in my app The Lean Cook with adjustable calories and macros.

Ingredients for 2 servings

250 g green olives, stone in
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 tsp dried oregano
15 g extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, zest only


  • Your olives are most likely to be in a brine so drain these and give these a quick rinse in cold water before putting into a bowl.
  • Add the crushed garlic, dried oregano, lemon zest and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Give everything a good mix and put into a jar before putting in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

  • These are best kept in the fridge and should last 2-3 days.
