Lemon Olive Oil Cake
This cake highlights the fruit-forward qualities of the olive oil, while balancing out the citrus notes from the lemon. You can substitute a different citrus fruit, or even add some fresh herbs to make this cake yours — I love adding some fresh lemon thyme and serving it with a dollop of yogurt. — Maria Loi and Sarah Toland, The Greek Diet Click Here to See More Cake Recipes

Olive Oil Poached Salmon
Poaching fish is a great, easy way to cook the protein while ensuring that it retains all its moisture. And poaching something in olive oil takes that to the next level. You'll want to use a tasty extra-virgin olive oil for this because the fish will absorb a lot of the oil's flavor during the cooking process. I went with simple flavors (lemon, garlic, chile, oregano) to let the olive oil and fish shine, but it would be easy to sub in any additional herbs and spices (think rosemary or other citrus) you like.

Pan-Fried Olives with Rosemary
Olives — those supremely flavorful little packages — have become a standby in most households. Indeed, a bowl of olives is the finger food of choice at dinner parties. Olives are now so common, it's easy to take those gems for granted. So, it's no surprise that a bowl of olives is always on my coffee table whenever friends come over for dinner. But since I always like to coax a bit more flavor out of things, I want my bowl of olives to bring some excitement — and even a little surprise — to my guests. This recipe certainly fulfills both objectives. Biting into these meaty, warm olives is such an unexpected sensation that everyone always stops in their tracks and marvels. The olives turn out to be mellower when warmed and their flesh literally melts in your mouth. Meanwhile, the pan-fried rosemary contributes its irresistible herbal-pungency to make the whole experience quite delightful. So here's to the olive and to the endless pleasure it gives us all!

Olives are a natural complement to bread, especially when they’re baked inside it. Be sure to buy firm unpitted olives for this — pitted olives tend to be softer, and though buying them that way may save you time, the olives will easily disintegrate and add extra moisture to the dough.

I love green olives and figs, so I put this together with the chicken to have a salty-sweet combination. I found the green olive tapenade at my grocery store and the fig preserves at a specialty store. — Carol Hull, Hermiston, Ore.
