These Citrus Marinated Olives are the perfect healthy snack. Briny olives, fresh rosemary, roasted garlic, and citrus peels bring some much flavor to this easy recipe. They make a great party food or add some to your lunch box for an afternoon pick me up.

This snack is a new obsession of mine; briny olives, roasted garlic, refreshing citrus what’s not to love! They’re so easy to make, I love to keep them in the fridge at all times. If you’ve got healthy food ready to go in the fridge you’re more likely to eat healthy! And this citrus marinated olives are definitely a healthy snack.

For a long time I hated olives, just thought they were a gross food adults put in their drinks. One of my earliest memories is at my aunts house, my cousin Tyler and I were maybe 5. We were putting the olives on our fingers, licking the salt off, and then throwing them back in the bowl. I remember getting in trouble and thinking everyone else was being unreasonable, but now I get it. That was pretty gross.

Now I like olives for more than that first salty taste! Particularly green olives, plus I think green olives are pretty! What really gives these garlic their flavor is the roasted garlic. This is something I always keep in the fridge, and you should too! These citrus marinated olives aren’t only a healthy snack, but its a perfect party food. Just set out a bowl and some tooth picks and your friends will feel like they’re at a classy bar! It’s such an easy appetizer and I love that it’s nearly vegetarian/vegan! Sometimes vegetarian options seemed forced, I don’t need a million vegetables all in one dish. Olives hardly even feel like a vegetable, my favorite kind!

    I love olives! This look so good. Roasted garlic flavor in it makes it even better. I am saving the recipe for sure. The things we do as kids and looking back at them and laugh at them and realize how silly we were the best things that you have in life. :))
