"I will use Kalamata olives instead of the ripe olives - which have no flavor, in my opinion. I know this will become a lunch favorite for us. Thanks much!"

"We really liked this! I did not add the olives and served it on a salad. Very good! I did take a hunk of italian bread and dip it in the marinade and thought is was great!"
