    This stuff RULES THE UNIVERSE. Especially the green. Slap some on a piece of toast and prepare for a mouthgasm that will leave you gasping and begging for more. I kid you not.

    Edited to add: For some reason the image refuses to appear. If it had what you would've seen are two jars of Rustichella D'Abruzzo Olive Paté, one green olive and the other black.

    check out a French or Italian cook book for Olive Tapanade recipes. The variety is infinite with a little imagination.

    My favorite is to coarsly puree Kalamata olives(pitted of course), a little roasted garlic, a couple of anchovies and minced flat leaf parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. (roasted red peppers are a welcome addition to this recipe)

    Spread on slices of bread, grilled meats or grilled vegetables.

    Make your favorite tuna salad and layer some olive spread on one slice of good rye bread...

    I don't recall ever seeing this in a grocery store. Another request for where it is sold. :)

    Well I buy it at a local deli and they charge $6.25/jar. However, I see where you can get it at Amazon.com for $15.70 for one jar each of the green and black. I'm guessing if you hit your local deli or Italian foods store you could find it there too.
