"We just had these this weekend and we loved them. The only problem is I'm having trouble staying out of the refridgerator to eat the leftovers! Delicious and really easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, it will be used often!"

"I have made this for every get together and they are a super hit with olive lovers. I don't use the parsley. If you like olives - these are wonderful"

"Excellent. I made a batch of these and we decided to sample them before our quests arrived and ended up eating the entire tray! I made them up ahead of time so all that needed to be done was pop them in the oven and they turned out fine. I might try doubling the recipe and spreading it onto a loaf of italian bread for larger slices."
