Black Olives

My 4 yr. old loves black olives. She will sit down with a bowl of them & be happy until they are gone. I need some recipes that use them. If tomatoes are involved that would be a big plus. She eats tomatoes like they are apples! So, something with both would make her very happy! I made her some stuffed tomatoes with olives, rice, montery jack cheese, & basil & she ate 2 of those! So any ideas would be greatly appriciated!

Both of those ingredients would be great over pasta with some good olive oil and some cheese and basil.

crewsk, how about greek salad? :) I hope she likes salad already, but if not..this way she can definately eat it :

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tcup red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon fresh oregano
1 teaspoonfresh thyme leaves
1/2 lemon, juiced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tomatoes, seeded and cut into chunks
1/2 medium red onion, sliced thin
1/2 medium cucumber, sliced thin
1/4 pound feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted
1/2 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces

Combine all the salad ingredients excluding the olives together. Make the dressing whisk garlic, oregano, vinegar, salt and pepper. Emulsify with the olive oil whisking vigorously. Add the olives to the dressing and crumbled fetta. Dress the salad.

Jpmcgrew, she loves fruit too! In fact both of my kids do! Miguzigoldfish, she loves black olive pizza! Because she is the only one here that eats them, I have to make or order one pizza with half black olives for her!

Couple of ideas.....
Make bruschetta on toasted french or italian toasted rounds, but add diced olives to the tomatoes - YUM!

Also - diced olives are a fun addition to deviled egg filling
