    Pickled: Easy Recipes to Store the Mediterranean Sun in Your Pantry Posted on Author Renata 25 Comments Pickled fruits and herbs from the Mediterranean cuisine are fantastic: Tasty, pretty, and with my recipes so easy to make! 3 reviews for Mediterranean Olive Mix 5 out of 5 Review SAHARA SZELIGA – J

      The olive is a bitter, tart, and/or savory fruit. Many varieties are grown, and a large number of preparation methods exist. Most olives are simply pressed for oil..

We started with a fennel-citrus salad lightly dressed in olive oil, continued through soup, beans, meat, seafood, pasta, and greens, then finished with house-made ice cream drizzled with olive oil, paired with a delicate olive-oil cookie. Everything was delicious. Olive oil is at the core of the Mediterranean Diet.

      Pickling olives can leave you with a large amount of unused olive oil and vinegar. Instead, wash and pickle say one quarter of the can. You can start eating them within 24 hours, so within a week all that remains in your bottle is a mixture of olive oil and vinegar.
