I'm making a dish that calls for olives. I don't particularly care for them. Is there anything I can substitute? 

Try substituting 1/2 cup of olives with 2 to 3 tablespoons of capers–you'll still get salty, pickled flavor, but with a fraction of the calories.

This Roasted Bell Pepper-and-Olive Pizza is a great example of a recipe where you could replace the chopped green olives with some additional capers.
