Olives just might be the most controversial items in any room. Offer a bowl of olives to any group, anywhere, any time, and prepare for the backlash. "Olives! I looooove olives!" some will scream, while others echo refrains of aversion: "I hate olives"; "I'll have the Greek salad -- no olives"; "Are there olives in this?"

To the olive lovers: this one's for you. To the olive haters: are you willing to give it another go? At the end of the day, you might still scrunch your face at the thought of these salty, pit-laden poppers, but what if things have changed? What if, miracle-of-all-miracles, you find a way to enjoy this tiny fruit of biblical proportions? (You at least like olive oil, right?) In any case, we're extending the proverbial olive branch: Here are 7 olive recipes for the lovers, haters, and reluctant converts among us.
