Nutritional values

Olives contain a lot of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid. Thus they can help improve the ratio between "good" and "bad" cholesterol in the body, lower blood pressure and slow down inflammatory processes in the blood vessels. 

Make sure to buy mozzarella that is as fresh as possible to ensure optimal flavor.
