Wow - this was soooooo good! My husband and I brought it to a potluck dinner. Six of us ate the entire loaf! We will definitely make this again as it was quick, easy, and delicious. The quality of the olives is important - we used kalamata olives.

Pretty good stuff. A few changes I made: used hazelnuts instead of walnuts (didn't have any) and spread in a cast iron skillet to bake instead of a loaf pan (it cooked faster that way). Sprinkled the top with some extra rosemary and a generous pinch of kosher salt. Good stuff on a cold spring day like today.
