DALLAS (KDAF) — Olives can be used in a variety of ways in food, oils, cocktails and more. Black or green, it matters not, as Wednesday, June 1 is National Olive Day!

Grab a martini, use some olive oil of any variety, or eat some olives by themselves or in your favorite Mediterranean dish. NationalToday says, “Olives have more nutritional benefits than you might think. They offer a host of healthy types of fats and fatty acids, while also providing a natural source of iron. And there are far more ways to prepare olives than you probably know. Olives are grown on trees, and they can be grown for serving as a table fruit or for producing oil.”
