    Olives are extremely common ingredients in salads. I don't know why you are having issues. – Catija Sep 30 '16 at 9:39

    @Catija mightn't the OP be asking how to cure fresh olives? – Giorgio Oct 1 '16 at 0:14
  • @Dorothy the question is very confusing but, considering the comment on the answer, no, that doesn't seem to be the case. – Catija Oct 1 '16 at 0:56
  • @Catija lost in translation :-) thx – Giorgio Oct 1 '16 at 1:10

Generally, any salty/pickled ingredient becomes part of the overall salt (and acid) balance of a salad - since olives are salty but not INEDIBLY salty, you can decide to taste how much you want to include, and how fine you want to cut them - you could do everything between including them whole (maybe pitted) and cutting/grinding them to a mince, brunoise, or paste - or a combination of such. The trick is to reduce the salt (and maybe acid) you add to other parts of the salad.
