A couple of items work in a pinch, although there is no true substitute,

1. Try Capers
2. Pickled Peppers make a good alternative

Both of these impart their flavor when cooking - so add them at the same time they specify the olives

YES!!! The Kalamata olive has a MUCH stronger, saltier taste than your typical Spanish black olive.
