September 2, 2011

Olives are easily on my list of Top 5 favorite foods - black, green, purple, marinated, in oil, brined, French, Greek, Israeli - you name it, I've probably tried it (when it comes to olives, anyway). The beauty about the web is that I can always find new recipes for my favorite ingredients - including olives of all shapes and sizes! Here are 5 of my new favorite recipes for this ancient, delicious ingredient.

Thanks to Foodista for posting the tastiest recipes! There's a problem with one of the links, though: The "Olive Tapenade" link brings one to the "Creamy Feta and Olive Dip" page. I can't wait to try the rest! Thank you also for all the GF recipes- I can now refer my friends who have gluten issues (as I do) here.
