Simple Cream Cheese & Olive Dip

Ingredients

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend well. Don't have a food processor? No problem. Finely chop the olives and mix with the cream cheese adding about 2 oz. at a time. Stir well.

Serving Size: 1 ounce
Yield:  8 servings
Time:  5 minutes

Which Olives to Use?

It depends what you're looking for.

For presentation I added some fresh ground pepper on top before serving. A dusting of paprika would be another option. Better yet, some fresh herbs such as parsley would dress it up for when you're entertaining.

Serving Suggestions

Entertaining

It is great to serve as an appetizer.
  • Serve with crackers or spread it on bread. As suggested above, don't forget your fresh herbs.
  • Use it as the dip for a veggie tray.

Breakfast

Try it in place of plain cream cheese on your morning bagel or piece of toast.

Snack or Lunch

This is great as a snack. Similar to the veggie tray option above, you can have it with celery, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes, or any other vegetable you use as a vehicle for dip as an after-school snack or part of a packed lunch.
