Notes

Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • Be sure to use pitted olives. I prefer kalamata olives for this recipe, but you can easily substitute whole pitted black olives or green olives.
  • Be sure to use the pepperoncini peppers, even if you are not a fan of mildly hot pepper. Roasting them releases some of the juices which provide a hint of tangy flavor.
  • Serve this dish hot or at room temperature.
