Lemon, lime and orange bring a burst of sunny citrus flavor to marinated olives that are great for nibbling on at holiday buffets. You can even blend the olives and spread the mixture onto baguette slices.—Ann Sheehy, Lawrence, Massachusetts

"I served these to go along with lasagna at our Christmas dinner and my family went nuts for them! I didn't have any salt-free seasoning blend on hand so I got a recipe off the internet and it worked great! I made them a day ahead so they would have plenty of time to marinate. So good!"
