Good stuff! I used Indian hard bread and chopped onions, basil and cliantro and added curd too to the mix. We liked the crunch and the taste too! The olives gave it a good twang.

This made a nice light sandwich just perfect for summer! I didn't have the cream cheese with the chive and onion so I added onion powder and scallions. I put this on Jewish rye and it was delicious! Thanks CL!
