One of our go-to meals for lunchÂ is egg and olive salad. The kids andÂ I eat oursÂ on crackers, and Joe eats his on a sandwich. He likes his sandwich with lettuce and tomato, which I included in the recipe below butÂ did not have when I took the photo above (in case you wonder about that). My favorite part of egg and olive salad is having lots and lots of olives inside. They have to be green, and they have to be stuffed withÂ pimentos. It is SO good.
Olives from Spain
Olives from Spain are a naturally sugar-free food and contain monounsaturated fats, which can improve cholesterol levels in the blood and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. One serving of Olives from Spain (7 large olives) provides 35 calories and 2.5 grams of monounsaturated, healthy fat, making it a great substitute for foods higher in saturated fat. Spain is the world leader in production and exports of table olives, accounting for 22% of world production and 40% of world exports. 95% of stuffed pimento olives consumed in the US (like the ones in my egg and olive salad) come from Spain. This month, Olives from Spain will head to Miami for the countryâ€™s premiere food festival. If you are lucky enough to attend the renowned South Beach Wine and Food Festival, be sure to stop by the Olives from Spain station to sample some tasty bites. Look for the Olives from Spain logo on your olives! Connect with Olives from Spain on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube.
