Grown exclusively in Kalamata, in the southern Peloponnese of Greece, these purplish, almond-shaped olives are distinguished by their plump size, meaty texture and robust flavor. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, they are a staple of the Mediterranean Diet. Eaten by locals for thousands of years, Kalamata olives are an essential ingredient of every Greek Salad. Krinos Kalamata Olives are perfect for tapenades, caponata, bruschetta and pasta sauces. Use them to add a delicious tang to a Watermelon, Feta and Mint Salad. Or drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, herbs and lemon peel – and enjoy!
