Green Olive Paste – Description
The Halkidiki Green Olives are worldwide famous and naturally produced in abundance in the Halkidiki region. They have an oval shape and a yellow-green color, a slightly acidic taste and a fruity aroma. During the harvest, we pick one by one in September and October. The olive has 74 % water, 1% proteins, as well as vitamins and minerals. It also contains monounsaturated acids which, proven by studies, reduce cardiovascular diseases, inflammation and blood pressure. You can use the Green Olive Paste as an appetizer or side dish, with a slice of bread or a nut or in salads such as the Cretan salad with dako, or in many of your other recipes. You can even use it on your toast!
How to Use & Serving Suggestion
First, take the desired amount of paste out of the package, into a deep plate or bowl.
We add a little extra virgin olive oil, mix so that it goes everywhere – and if we want – any other spice of our liking such as oregano, bukovo or some other ingredient.
Cut a few slices of bread or pieces of pie and toast them a little.
Dip them in the paste… Enjoy!
