Olive Spider Garnishes: Use toothpicks to poke three holes on each side of each colossal olive. Gently insert 1 chow mein noodle into each hole. Insert one small black olive into the opening of each colossal olive to make the spider's head, or use additional chow mein noodles to help connect the two olives.
