This recipe comes from Marsha Adams, who hosted a program on American Public Broadcasting stations called Quilt Country. The first time I tried it, I knew it was something that I had to share with you. I use those Spanish green olives that are stuffed with pimentos, because it adds some nice color.Since the recipe calls for diced, I save a little money by using the ones that come sliced in the jar because they are made from olives that are not perfect enough to be sold whole

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients, adding more or less Mayonnaise depending on your desire to make a Chip Dip, or a Sandwich Spread --.
  2. It was often served on dark heavy bread as a sandwich at quilting bees.

I had this spread on toast and it was fantastic! My husband wasn't crazy about it (doesn't like olives) but that just meant more for me! Thanks, I will be making this again.

My kids loved this, even my daughter who doesn't care for tuna salad. I substituted chopped celery for nuts. Great to have on hand to make sandwiches for a quick lunch.
