2 cups mixed Greek olives
1 4-oz jar capers
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Toss ingredients together and allow to marinate overnight.

Wine vinegar was chosen because it would have been readily
available. Olive oil was used for similar reasons, and because it
would complement the flavor of the olives.
