Full Answer

Thaw olives completely before eating. Discard olives that have changed color, produce strong odors or appear slimy or limp as these are typical signs of food spoilage. Black olives should stay fresh for up to three weeks in the refrigerator after thawed. Put black olives in salads, soups and vegetable platters or add to kabobs, pasta or side dishes.
