Total time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8
1/2 pound large Greek-style black olives, pitted

1 garlic clove, peeled and pounded to a paste with a pinch of coarse salt
Small pinch of cayenne
1 teaspoon tender young savory leaves, finely chopped, or a pinch of crumbled dry savory leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
