A little olive named Castelvetrano
There is a great little Italian market in Portland that I've shopped at a couple of times during my stay here. For our upcoming Vineyard sightseeing (and last day in town), I recently picked out some delicious charcuterie and olives, along with sheep and goat cheese to pair it with...
(Below are a few salads I've made with the delicate flavors from this market)
However this blog post is all about OLIVES!!!
These olives were just recently introduced to me while in New Orleans.
They are called Castelvetrano, from Italy.
They are pale green, buttery, nutty, and just slightly salty.
I thought I had tasted plenty of good olives but these are THE BEST!!!!
You can't stop eating them, they taste good in everything, or even by themselves.
As my father would say, "RUN! don't walk! to the market to get these!"
You can usually find them at any Whole Foods, in the olive bar area, and I'm sure any market with an olive bar/section carries them.
If you've already had them......why didn't you share!!!??? hee hee
I find everyday I live & breathe to be a gift.
