Roasting olives is a fun and simple technique that gives them a slightly chewy outside and a dense flesh and transforms them into a truly unique bite. The addition of tomatoes, whole garlic and herbs de Provence adds color, texture and added flavor to a mixture of glossy black ripe olives, brightly flavored Kalamatas and briny green olives stuffed with garlic. We like to serve this starter with toasted baguette slices, crackers, pita bread or just by themselves with skewers to make it easy to pick them up and pop them in your mouth. Note: herbs de Provence is a dried herbal blend of rosemary, basil, sage, thyme, summer savory and lavender. It can be found at larger grocery stores or online. If you have trouble finding it, just make your own mix of a few of the designated dried herbs that you have on your pantry shelf. It will be delicious.
