Useful links and information on Kalamata Olives I have found so far are:

 

   

Kalamata is a region in Greece, famous for its production of olives and olive oils. In particular the Kalamata olive is often known as the Greek olive, and is distinct in taste and appearance from most green and black olives. When Kalamata olives are not used for olive oil, which is a fairly common use, they are normally brined, packed in olive oil or pickled in wine vinaigrette.

Unlike most green and black olives, Kalamata olives are a deep, rich aubergine in color. When they are soaked in vinegar or brined, they may appear almost dark brown or black. On the tree, these purple almond-shaped fruits are hard to miss because of their beautiful color. They also tend to pack more meat than the average black variety.

Olive oil is considered to be one of the world’s best oils, one of the good fats that people try hard to get into their diet. Olives of any type are great to add to salads if you're looking to add monounsaturated fat to your diet. You can use Kalamata olives, or any other types to salads to add a natural and excellent source of fat to food.

   

Most people suggest that Kalamata olives are a perfect snack alone, or added to cheese and vegetable plates. They’re also fantastic in olive tapenade, a rich olive spread popular in the Mediterranean. Since some of these olives are brined, you may want to look for either those packed in vinegar or oil, if you’re trying to keep your sodium intake low. You can rinse brined olives too, to reduce some of the salt. You’ll be unable to reduce sodium completely in Kalamata olives because they are normally split down the center, allowing greater absorption of the brine in the inner flesh of the fruit.
