Slice chiles as thin as possible - try to cut off slender wedges. Include the seed mass but not the stem. Crush, mince or press garlic (unless you prefer the rush of a chunky cut). Mince herbs, juice lemon. Add all ingredients to the olives, mix, and allow to rest for at least an hour if not overnight.
Serve as a side dish for a big feast, and warn the wimps. The visible slices of thin red pepper ought to provide a clear enough warning to all but the least observant. Enjoy! CHILE-HEADS DIGEST V3 #078
