I really enjoyed this recipe. Definitely said no to the raisins!

I, too, leave out the raisins most of the time. Although I like the contrast they provide, some members of my family do not. No matter, it's still very tasty without them.

This is a wonderful recipe. The olives add just the right touch. I had to admit to not always include the raisins. We don't miss it.
