Nutritional values

This Mediterranean snack is not entirely low in fat because of the olives, olive oil, and canola oil. But these contain an abundance of unsaturated fatty acids that are great for the heart, circulation, and blood vessels!

You can prepare the spicy olive paste well in advance. Simply mix twice or three times the amount and keep in the refrigerator for up to about 5 days.
