Author Notes

Castelvetrano olives are my absolute favorite olives. They’re the perfect combination of creamy and briney (yup, that’s a word) without being bitter. That’s my problem with a lot of other olives that you can buy at the store, they’re too bitter.

Castelvetrano olives alone are the perfect snack to pair with a cocktail which is why I always have them on hand but have you ever used them as the star of a dish? This recipe highlights the olives and trust me, everyone will be impressed.
