bluemoon downunder's Note:
A yummy-sounding recipe from the current issue of the Australian magazine 'super food ideas'. You'll need 8 pre-soaked wooden bamboo skewers. Feel free to vary the olives in this recipe. I haven't made these yet but I'd be inclined to use unpitted kalamata olives or perhaps half and half unpitted kalamata olives and the suggested pimento-stuffed green olives. I've suggested that these could be served at a picnic, if you were picnicking where there were BBQs. They could be made up to the end of step 1. For serving at a home BBQ, they could of course also be prepared to that stage and BBQd just before you are ready to serve them.
