Place olives in a medium bowl.

In a small saucepan, combine olive oil and vinegar. Bring to a simmer. Turn off heat and gently stir in herbs and lavender.

Pour the warm mixture over the olives and let them marinate at room temperature for at least 2 hours.

The olives may be made 1 week ahead and kept refrigerated in an airtight container. Return to room temperature before serving.

Herbes de Provence, which typically includes; Basil, Fennel Seed, Marjoram, Thyme, Rosemary, Sage and Summer Savory, is usually found in the herb section of high-end specialty food stores. Lavender, a member of the mint family, lends pungency to the mix. You can use all of these or a subset.
