This is really 2 posts in 1:
1) I got a container of morrocan olives. They're good but too salty to eat with just bread or directly on salad. What can I do with it?
2) What are your sources for inspiration when you just have seemingly random ingredients in the fridge. For example, right now I have pecans, olives, and bok choy. What is your source for ideas (beside chowhound of course)?
