Real Kalamata olives are only found on the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece. Growing under the Grecian sunshine, Kalamata trees have much larger leaves than other types of olive trees and absorb more sunshine. This gives their dark purple fruit a dense texture and a flavor some compare to fine wine.
Just six olives contain half as much fiber as a raw orange. That means you can enjoy olives as part of a meal that otherwise wouldn’t provide much roughage. Try Kalamata olives with feta cheese on a homemade Greek-style pizza or add them to one of your savory dishes.
