Try this easy but delicious addition to your butter in so many different ways to zhoosh up almost anything; As a spread on hot fresh rolls or bread, or cut a piece and allow to melt over grilled steak, chicken, or fish. Replace normal butter in a shortbread or pastry recipe for either a savoury or sweet addition to your recipe. Try over freshly steamed vegetables, to add something interesting to your ham or cheese sandwich, or just on crackers instead of a dip.
If you think this is contradictory in that we are using unsalted butter, then adding salt, it is merely so you can control the saltiness of the end result. Olives can vary significantly in saltiness. You just have more control over the end result.
