These are fabulous! I regularly buy a marinated olive blend from a local Italian market/deli, but the addition of balsamic vinegar gives these just a little extra special something even better. I found they had their best flavour after marinating for a week, stirring them daily. The only problem I had was the olive oil thickening in the refrigerator, but leaving them on the counter for an hour or so took care of that. "Optional" garlic also made me giggle... I used 6 cloves.
