Just a few foods around the world naturally contain four basic flavours. Olives are one of them, as they are bitter, sweet, salty and acidic at the same time. That makes them usable for almost any kind of dish you can wish for, but already just the olive itself is mouthwateringly good. Doesn´t matter if it´s as a little snack or as an ingredient of a side- or main dish, you can never go wrong with those little black or green fruits. By the way, the colour of the olive only depends on how ripe it is when it gets plucked. If you´re also such a big fan of olives as we are, then you´ll love our olive themed recipes. And if you´re not, it´s time we change your mind.
