Marinated Olives

I bought a packet of 1kg Turkish black olives from a store in Great World City some weeks back. I had been searching around for recipes to enhance the olives. Finally, I found a simple recipe to use it.
Recipe for Marinated Olives, adapted from "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman

Ingredients:
500g Black olives
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, or to taste
4 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 sprig of Fresh Rosemary
1 tsp Chilli flakes
Method:
  1. Mix all the ingredients and transfer to a jar or serving bowl.
  2. It's better to cover and refrigerate for a day or two.
  3. They will keep, improving in flavour, for several weeks. However, bring them to room temperature before serving.
I'll add them to salads, or even eat them with my meals in future. If it's really good, I'll go back and get more olives!

Hi Janice,
Thank you very much for your award. I'm truly honoured!

Hi Reese,
I can eat it on its own too! I always forget to add them to my salads.

Hi Shirley,
Gee, I don't know how else to use them! I'm still left with a quarter of the olives. I puree some of those already.

Hi cherry potato,
Thank you very much for your award! I'm flattered!

Hi Jean and Zoe,
Don't have too high expectations. I still don't have ideas how to use them.

Hi Edith,
Thanks for your suggestion! I didn't think of that! Will try olive rice...:)
