Olive Bread

Olive Bread

Olive bread is a classic Mediterranean bread, easy to make, delicious and full of flavor. The intense taste of salty olives turns this simple bread to a flavorsome and extra tasty snack.I used dry black olives in salt (known as throumpes in Greece) but you can use green or Kalamata olives as well.
