Olives are a delicious pantry staple, and you can buy lots of juicy jarred olives in brine for very little at a warehouse store. But how to use up that huge jar? Here are three ideas to get you started-a savory tart, a hearty pan-roast, and a tangy salsa. Aside from being easy to prepare and utterly delicious, these recipes are so versatile you can make them with any olives you have on hand-black, green, or a combination. That jar will be gone before you know it.
