Servings: 4 people
Bring a skillet to a low medium heat with extra virgin olive oil, drained Castelvetrano olives, fresh thyme, garlic, and lemon zest. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is fragrant.
Turn off heat and let the oil/olive mixture sit on the stove for 10 minutes, while the flavors meld.
Pour the mixture into a serving bowl and serve warm.
These warmed olives reheat well and are even better the next day. Store in a covered container until ready to use. To reheat, put everything back in a skillet, warm over a low medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes and serve.
After the olives are gone, dip bread in the remaining garlic/lemon oil, or use it for salad dressing with a splash of vinegar.
