An olive that has the flesh split open either manually or by a machine with thin, sharp blades in order to allow a marinade of oils (such as olive oil) vinegars, herbs (such as herbes de Provence), and spices (basil, garlic, fennel, lemon, onion, or others), to penetrate the meat faster. A cracked olive may also be referred to as a slit olive, a split olive, a cracked olive, or a cracked green olive. Several common cracked olives are the Nafplion, marinated with olive oil, or the Provençal olive marinated with herbes de Provence (herbs grown in Provence, France).
