Gorgonzola and Olive Stuffed Grape Leaves
These are the richest appetizers we have ever served. They are wonderful with wine and cheese! A version of this recipe was a gift from a friend and we have enjoyed it along with our guests. Use as much Gorgonzola as suits your taste!
C and L's Stuffed Black Olives
This is a great party appetizer, or a really good family snack. Serve with marinara sauce. There is often a bit of the meat mixture left over, so you may want to use more olives than I have recommended in this recipe.
Fabulous Olive Salsa by James
Our friends James and Jayden had us over for some backyard entertainment and served this delicious dish up. We managed to talk them into handing over the recipe. Mess with the mix and quantity of olives to suit your taste.
Black Olive Spread
I got this recipe from a friend who can't remember where she got it. It's different than the usual creamy spreads and is versatile and delicious.
Fig and Olive Tapenade
This is an easy gourmet appetizer. I've brought this to several parties and it is always a hit! I often add some chopped green olives to the olive mixture and a little more balsamic. Goat cheese may also be used in place of the cream cheese. Serve with slices of French bread or crackers.

These puff pastry-wrapped olives are our family's favorite holiday appetizer. We make them with a variety of olives - pimento stuffed green, plump kalamata, Provencal - just make sure they are pitted. We like to use strongly flavored olives; the flavor of canned ripe olives disappears in the puff pastry. You can make these ahead, and freeze; allow 30 minutes for the pastry to thaw before baking. Another advantage: the kids like to make them and eat them.
Olive Pecan Spread
This delicious spread is a hit with everyone. Even people, like me, who don’t care for green olives absolutely love it. This is my most requested recipe. Try it! You won’t be disappointed.
Three Olive Spread
This recipe was given to me by a coworker for the holidays. It is best when made with olives purchased at a deli. Serve with your favorite cracker, baguettes or thin italian bread slices.
Cheese and Olive Bread
This bread is a great addition to any Italian meal. We like it so much, we just sometimes make a meal out of it alone!
Baked Cheese Olives
Rich cheese dough surrounds a savory olive. A great pick-up appetizer or snack. You can freeze the unbaked, dough-wrapped-olives and then bake them right out of the freezer, extending the baking time by a few minutes.
