I love these! Marinated cheese and olives make the perfect nibbles and are perfect in salads too! What’s more, I don’t think you can go wrong with this as a gift for a foodie. I know I say this all the time, they’re so easy to make at home and taste so much better than shop bought!

Perfect as part of a tapas spread, skewered to form canapés, take a look at Rosemary Spears, which is the second picture here.

Shall we get started?
