What to do with left over Kalamata olive "juice"?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of jars of left-over Kalamata olive "juice" (the marinade- we've eaten the olives themselves!). Any ideas for what I can use it in? Thanks!!

I might add it to minestrone soup to give the soup a little more punch.

First though is martinis, and the second is chickpea salad sandwhiches. The soup idea is good too.

Soup or salad dressing! I also add it to the cooking tomatoes when I'm making homemade spaghetti sauce in the summer... adding to commercial spaghetti sauce would be too salty I think...

Another vote for salad dressing. I'll use up olive "juice" by pouring it over my salads.

I'd do the hummus or soup idea. Give either a nice kick.

Hummus can be nice with lots of things, depending on your tastes. People eat it with raw veggies, like carrots, celery, peppers, etc, as a spread on sandwiches, with pita, with chips, on pizza, thinned out to make a salad dressing, or just by the spoonful.

Thanks, guys! I will definitely try out the soup, salad and pasta sauce ideas, all sound yummy!

Kibble, my first idea was martinis too, believe me, I've tried! But I found the kalamata flavor to be a little too overwhelming for that; I think I'll stick with the green olives juice.

We do use it in hummus too and it's great for that. But I think we just eat olives much faster than we make and eat hummus so I've ended up with 3 extra jars.

Mmmm...olives, really the only fruit I eat, and that's cause it's brined!
