I love olives. I love them plain, stuffed, sliced, diced, Spanish, Greek, Californian…. I eat them au natural, I use them as condiments and toppings on pizza, burgers, in salads….I’ve even cured my own, at home, a couple of times. That was rewarding, but the “wait” was torture!
So I have a need for sliced olives on occasion, and while it’s easy to find sliced black, there aren’t many companies or stores that stock sliced green olives on a regular basis.
Yes, I could slice my own, or buy those crushed, shredded things they call “salad olives”, but I like a nice, symmetrical, clean sliced product.
I was therefore quite delighted when a local grocery offered them on a recent special. I was able to return to the store three times and stock up properly! The brand name is Napoleon, and looking them up online, I see they have a long history and make quite a few products. Their sliced greens, which are Spanish in origin, are about as good as you can get, in my opinion.
I’ve laid in a supply for the winter, and asked the company where I can find the product regularly, nearby. I may just have to make another three or four trips!
