I love olives. Black, green, pitted or not.

We always had a can in the pantry and it didn’t last long once I learned to use a can opener.

I believe that was age 6.

The California Olive Committee is hosting a “Dress Up Your Dish” recipe contest.

They are the glitter for your pizza

The glitz for your salad

Any way you look at it they dress up your dish and this is your chance to show how!

Head on over to the contest page and show how you can accessorize your dish with California Black Ripe Olives.  Upload your original recipe to the California Black Ripe Olives Facebook page and be entered  for a chance to win a $2,500 cash prize or one of three $100 Gilt.com gift cards.

The contest is going on through June 30, 2011 so grab your recipe book and head on over. Three finalists will be selected based on creativity (25%), ease-of-preparation (25%), taste (25%), and if the recipe uses at least six ounces of California Black Olives (25%).

Finalists will be announced July 15, and then fans will vote on the top recipe!

I hope you’ll let me know if you enter!
