When I get a jar, or keg, I dump off the brine and replace it with water. You can fool around--save half the brine and fill up with water, or you may, for really salty olives repeat the water rinse.

I like the green stuffed ones on pizza and like amysarah have been buying the Kalamata olives at Costco. I use them in my salads and on my Focaccia and just to eat out of hand. Also the sliced black ones are great in Greek cukes and tomato salad with feta.

Very topical - I’ve been buying giant jars of Kalamata olives at Costco all winter – cheap and surprisingly good. Besides some things you already mentioned: lots of Puttanesca sauce (I like it olive-heavy anyway.) Also sandwiches on flat bread with leftover meat (roast chicken, pork, lamb, etc.) and olives, feta, tomatoes, and quick tahini or yogurt/garlic/lemon sauce. Very easy and delicious. Olives are also great chopped up and added to egg salad.
