Do you Like, Love or HATE OLIVES?

I LOVE olives!  I am not sure I have ever met more than a couple I didn't like.

 

Plain old green olives from the grocery store to fancy ones in all colors, I love olives!

 

If you love them, do you have favorites?  I like those little black ones and the Greek ones best!

Re: Do you Like, Love or HATE OLIVES?

I love the marinated olives from the olive bar at the store. If I'm feeling up to it, I purchase the olives in the jar and and then marinate it with olive oil, lemon juice and herbs.  I usually use a mix of different olives. I do not like the black olives in a can.

@Sooner  LOVE! In the Italian Market in Philly, they have a Spring Mix and also a Greek Mix. I think the Spring Mix is my favorite. It's got large green, Kalamata and several others. Yummy! I guess plain black olives in the can are my least favorite. They have no taste. However, I won't turn them down. Hahahaha!

I am a big olive fan too!  The collosal black and the big stuffed ones that go into martinis are my favorites.I skip the booze and go straight for the olives.

Love the pimento stuffed green, but my fave are the black ones. Pitted, of course.
