1: Olive Tapenade
A delicious Olive Tapenade is actually surprisingly simple to create! We live to create different varieties and snack on them all at once! Homemade tapenade is also a perfect appetiser to wow your guests. Simply smear on Crustini toasts and viola to create an olivey, culinary masterpiece.
Olives are the perfect way to liven up this Italian classic! A crispy baguette, tangy tomatoes and salty olives create a fusion of flavour that’ll turn this into one of your favourite snacks!

Chicken Cacciatore is a long time family favourite and we can totally understand why. Tender chicken, tangy tomato and yummy olives – what’s not to love about that?

We’ll let you in on a little secret – stuffed tomatoes may look impressive and wow your guests but they are actually very easy to make! Don’t forget the olives, which make every single bite full of great flavour.
5: PANZANELLA SALAD
Olives have the ability to take any salad from drab to fab but we’re especially big fans of the classic Panzanella Salad. It may be simple combination, but gosh does it pack a punch of flavour!
6: OLIVE TART
A great tart recipe is a must for every aspiring master-chef and the secret to the perfect tart is… you guessed it – olives!

Not only is Spaghetti Puttanesca a timeless Italian classic, it’s also a very simple midweek dinner that tastes great! We love the combination of olives, tomato, capers and garlic – yum!
