Whole green Gordal olives




Whole Gordal olives – also known as ‘Queen’ olives – are very large green olives from Spain. Firm and plump with a fruity flavour, these olives are delicious on their own as a simple tapas dish.

The Spanish name for these green olives – gordal – comes from the word for ‘fat’, referring to their huge size. At around 6g each, they're one of the biggest olives in Spain and are therefore perfect for stuffing, perhaps with cheese, nuts or pickled pepper. Their relatively low fat content makes them less than optimal for making olive oil, so they are always eaten as table olives.

DiSanto's Gordal green olives are carefully selected by a small, local supplier for the ultimate olive taste sensation. Try serving these premium olives as an appetiser with a Martini or a dry sherry before dinner, or as part of an antipasto platter alongside cured meats, cheeses, chutneys and tapenades. They also complement chilli and anchovies. They make a delicious addition to gourmet salads, and can be used in cooking in myriad ways - for example, baked into focaccia or empanadas, or used to elevate pasta suppers. The robust, fruity flavours of Gordal olives will hold their own in any dish.
