Quick and easy to make, delicious, and great as left-overs!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2013

I make this recipe over and over. If my grown kids come by for a visit and there's any leftovers, they eat it up. I use green olives instead of ripe ones. the salty mixes well with the garlic and sweetnes of the raisins. Craisins work well also.

A delightful combination of flavors--and several immunity-boosting ingredients.
