What is Olive Salad

This tasty salad is made from green olives, black olives, olive oil, peppers, onions, capers, vinegar, herbs, and spices. It is used to make the muffuletta sandwich in and around New Orleans. It is also used in Mediterranean cuisine.

What to serve with Olive Salad

Olive Salad with Bread

This is one of those flavorful condiments that is excellent spread on a piece of crusty bread like this homemade French bread.  You can also serve it with Homemade Gluten-Free Bread too.

Many people like to put it on a Charcuterie board with cheese and crackers. While others only enjoy theirs on a Muffuletta Sandwich. (see below)

Are Olives Low Carb?

I found this interesting because so many are eating low carb these days. Olives are technically a fruit; however they contain minimal carbs. This doesn’t change between olive varieties either. Plus, the fiber in olives negates most of the carbs that are in them. This means if you are on a low carb diet, you can still enjoy your olives!
