olives?

i wouldn't say they are mandatory. I eat them on occassion, but they are more like a seasoning then anything else.

so, no nutritional value really?

aside from being a healthy source of fat, and probably some anti-oxidants and phytochemicals, probably not significant nutritional value, no.

I prefer olive oil.
Olives are full of salt.(sodium)

olive oil is good for you especially if you do not eat fish oils or flax seed oil. good for your arteries.

black - is it the brine that makes olives high in salt. or the actual olives themselves high in salt?

It's the brine.But I doubt if you can find olives w/o salt.

you can get oil-cured olives....they don't use a whole bunch of salt.

but for regular ones...it's the brine.

I don't really like canned olives, but if you can get some oil-cured ones fresh...yum yum yum.

The difference between canned olives and fresh ones is as dramatic as the difference between canned peaches and fresh ones.

A large grocery near me has a big "olive bar" in the Mediterranean section with about 12 different kinds of fresh olives...decadent!
