bread


Explanation:
ciabatta is a kind of flat brad that resembles a slipper or a shoe anyway. It's a good one for making bruschetta or dipping in oil, like in this case. Olive ciabatta must be a variety with olives (although it's not traditional :))
BUT AGAIN, SOME MORE CONTEXT WOULDN'T HARM
sorry for the caps, I didn't mean them. That's what ciabatta may be with this little context

Explanation:
I would leave it as is. or maybe "he swirled his slice/piece of olive ciabatta around in a light green dish of [olive] oil."

olive ciabatta +


Explanation:
You don't say whether this text has been translated, but I suspect it should be "a dish of light-green oil" rather than a light-green dish of some unspecified color of oil. Better yet, "a dish of pale/light green olive oil"
