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.
Didn't know what sort of olives to use...so I used black olives...really tasty...thanks Bill. =) I thought at the time it must mean green olives...I had none...and am a sucker for black ones anyway....didnt use many....will try it again with green....love this type of recipe.
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 worthy of lots of stars. 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.
I really liked this recipe--couldn't stop eating it. I used green olives with pimentos. Actually used an extra quarter cup of olives to give it a little more zing!
I've decided not to give this one any stars because honestly, I'm really not sure about this one. I was looking for something new to do with tuna and found this saved in one of my cookbooks. I've frequently added green olives to tuna salad before and thought I would like this as a change. I really can't say that I disliked this recipe, just that it was really different. The cream cheese makes it really rich for me. Even DH said the same when he tasted it, "Different". I think we're still pondering this one. I'll probably try this one again, with a few tweaks, because for some reason I'm really drawn to this and really want to "like" it. :)
Oh my gosh! I've been looking for this recipe for years!!! When I was child I lived in north western Pennsylvania. We lived out in the country and just down the road was an Amish family. The kids there were the only ones within walking distance so I spend a great deal of time there playing in the summers. Almost every day at lunch their mother would serve a spread very similar to this on homemade bread with fresh apples from their orchard. The best lunches ever!!!
I made this with green olives. I wasn't impressed. There are a lot of better appetizers that are quick, easy and taste better. My guests also didn't enjoy this (only one thought it was really good). Sorry, but I won't be making this again.
I made this "as is" with black olives. Before I added the walnuts, I thought this is really tasty. I wish I would have subed the walnuts for onions. As is, this is just OK. The walnuts just don't fit for me. Sorry.
I am not going to give this any stars because it could be just my personal taste and not the fault of the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly but I am not too crazy about the flavor. It is super rich and I can only taste the mayo.
