Cooking with Olives

April 10th, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Have you heard of Lindsay Olives?

I recently had the opportunity to work with the company on a photography project for one of their many naturally gluten-free recipes. (Lindsay Olives are gluten- and casein-free.) It was so much fun! I’ll be sharing the recipe and photos with you next week, but for now let’s talk about olives.

One of my favorite snacks is a handful of garlic-stuffed olives with a scoop of hummus and some carrots. I call it my “Mediterranean snack plate.” Stirred into salsas, sprinkled over salads, processed into pesto…olives have many delectable uses. And come on. Salt and fat in one delicious bite? I’m in!

Last summer, Lindsay Olives sponsored a gluten-free blogging series that had my mouth watering at every turn. Bloggers from across the web offered up olive-centric recipes all summer long. Here are a handful of the recipes shared during that event:

As you can see, there is no limit to what you can make with gourmet olives! Check out the Lindsay Olives website for more information about their product line and visit them on Facebook and Twitter, too.

Stay tuned for next week’s post with more olive chat and a great Lindsay Olives recipe!



  1. I adore olives!! How awesome, Hallie! This is so funny because I’m going to be posting an olive recipe next week as well. Can’t wait to see what you photographed and cooked up. More olives, yay! :D

  2. We had so much fun playing with olive recipes last summer. The only trouble was that most of us kept eating them and having to go buy more to finish the series. We all went a little crazy for the Green Ripe Naturals. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  3. LOVE black olives. We eat them lots with my gluten-free pizza and on their own with homemade hummus. Makes my mouth water just seeing the picture! Will have to try some of the recipes. The veges with quinoa sounds wonderful.

  4. We had olives on our pizza last night. Love em and I love all the recipes that came out of the sponsored gluten free series. Nectarine and olive tapenade. Helloo! YUM
