Kalamata Olive Sprinkle

Olive sprinkles (1)



 I had a sprinkle of Dried Black Olive Seasoning on a restaurant entrée recently and thought ‘how interesting’ and ‘why hasn’t anyone thought of this before’.

Well maybe it is not a new concept, just a new experience for me, but this extra level of texture and flavour to my salad, has lingered on my palate.


2 cups Kalamata Olives, pitted


Place olives in a food processor and process.

Spread paste thinly onto baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake in 200 C (180C fan forced) until olives are dried (30 – 40 minutes).  Use a fork to break up olives during baking time.

Use as a sprinkle over pasta, salads or incorporate into a cracker dough.
