Almonds with Olives (posted by vegetarianforhealth.com)
1 serving roasted marcona almonds (or raw almonds if marconas are not available)
8 small Spanish olives
1 peeled garlic

Place almonds on side of a plate and olives on the other side. Slice garlic into medallions and set in the middle of the plate. With a toothpick grab one sliver garlic and 1 olive and chase with some almonds. We recommend a cold light beer to wash this down. More Info.
