Olives are my fav. For those of you who are also HIMYM addicts, the “olive rule” is one of the cutest story lines ever:

On Lily and Marshall’s first date, Marshall got olives in his salad. Lily asked if he likes olives and Marshall said he didn’t, and let Lily have them. Marshall says The Olive Rule says that makes them a perfect couple, because he can let Lily have all his olives.

Turns out Marshall actually loves olives, and just pretended he didn’t to make Lily happy.

Olive tapenade:

1 jar Spanish olives
A few capers
A dash of garlic (powder), salt, and pepper
A splash of olive oil
A bit of ground mustard

Combine in food processor. Eat with pita chips (or spoon).
