Zeytun Parvardeh is commonly served as an appetizer and is quite nutritious. Seedless olives get marinated inside a mixture of ground walnuts, garlic, pomegranate juice, pomegranate paste, dried mints, dried thyme, eryngos and olive oil. Sometimes locals use pomegranate seeds in the mixture too. After a few days this nutritious mixture will flavor the olives superbly and create a magnificent side dish and souvenir. Nowadays you can find Zeytun Parvardeh in restaurants all over Iran.
