How many deliriously good things can you make with Kalamata olives? I recently purchased this enormous jar of olives from my beloved Costco, and I’m planning to find out. I’ve already made Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm, Olives, Red Peppers, and Feta. At the risk of sounding decidedly un-modest, it was fabulous. I can’t wait to make it again.

I never met an olive I didn’t like, but I think these particular olives are especially good, and when you factor in the price of $8.49 for over three pounds of high quality Kalamata olives, that’s definitely a Kalyn’s Kitchen pick for me. If you live where there’s not a Costco, my condolences.

This version of Mediterranean Salad with Hummus Dressing is one of the things I’ll definitely be making. Below are a few other recipes in which Kalamata olives add a lot of flavor.
