Try Castelvetrano Olives - you'll change your mind. They taste like black olives but they are bright green.

My husband won't eat a salad if cucumbers even touch his lettuce, and I'm the same way with green olives. Even if I pick them off of the slice of pizza, I can still taste them. Icky.

@The OP: I myself might have previously sometimes eaten some olives in my sandwiches. Honestly, I don't exactly remember right now.

I remember one time when I was in high school - yes, they had high school that long ago! - and my Mother had nothing to pack my lunch except some cream cheese and a jar of olives. So she got up early, softened the cream cheese, sliced the olives, and put the ingredients on white bread.
My mother asked me how I liked my lunch and not wanting to hurt her feelings, I told her it was good.
(It wasn't)

We had a lunch swap at school and after that one, nobody would ever let me put my lunch sack in the pile. Periodically, when money was tight, I'd find that dreaded Cr/ch/olive concoction in my bag. Never told her until my kids were in school how I hated that sandwich. I still laugh when I remember it.

I like green olives. Just plain, skip the cream cheese. I like pickles. Just about every kind. Big fat Jewish dills like we used to fish out of the barrel at the deli. Cost a nickel. I like gherkins. I like B&B. I like pickle relish. And jardinière with pickled cauliflower and carrots and onions and...
BUT no black olives TYVM.

Yes, quite frequently. I have a can of black olives in my fridge more often than not.

Toast with olive oil (instead of butter), ham, good cheese (not processed), tomatos and olives. Could eat that every day.

I prefer black olives. Green olives are OK, but lose the pimento.
I would lose the olives and just put the pimento (instead of pickles).
