Olives stuffed with creamy blue cheese make a tangy, flavorful treat; however, the high fat content of both ingredients means you should eat these condiments in moderation. A blue-cheese-stuffed olive typically has more calories than a plain olive or one stuffed with pimiento, so stick with just one or two pieces on your appetizer plate to prevent diet sabotage.
