Spicy Olives

1 jar of Trader Joe's World's Largest olives stuffed with pimentos

1 jar of Trader Joe's jalapeno stuffed olives

1 jar of Trader Joe's garlic stuffed olives

3 - 4  tablespoons of olive oil

5 - 6 large cloves of garlic, peeled

1 medium red onion

Crushed red pepper

Drain juice of the 3 jars of olives and put olives into a medium sized mixing bowl.

Drizzle olives in olive oil while gently turning them with a spoon. Use just enough oil so that olives are lightly coated.

Finely chop the 5 - 6  cloves of garlic and stir into bowl (more or less to taste).

Finely chop 1/3 to 1/2 of red onion and stir into bowl (more or less to taste).

Sprinkle liberally with crushed red pepper.

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. This will help the garlic, onion and red pepper stick to the olives.
