This is as simple as a recipe can be, but dramatically improves the flavor of jarred olives. Simply toss them with a few spices and marinate for as long as possible. There really isn’t a precise recipe- season to your taste. If you have any leftovers, they can be blitzed into a lovely tapenade. -Amanda

1/2 teaspoon dried mint
