If you are a green olive fan like I am, this is a must. My mom used to serve this to me for lunch when I was growing up. I still make it now and then and my kids love it too. My husband thought it was gross, but then tried it on crackers as an appetizer, now he's a fan.
- place cream cheese in bowl.
- add olive juice (a little at a time).
- incorporate olive juice into the cream cheese until you get a soft, smooth, creamy texture.
- chop olives (not the entire jar, just enough to your liking) and mix with the cream cheese serve on warm toast or on crackers.
Simple yet delicious, especially if you're an olive lover.<br/><br/>I threw in some finely diced onions, for the crunch I love so much. :)
I grew up on this also. We would buy a jar of green olives and 1 package of cream cheese, empty some of the juice, add the jar of olives to a food processor and blend a few seconds. We then add the cream cheese and let blend until completely mixed. Easy! Not only do we eat this on bread, we eat it on pretzels too! Yum!
I had to make some sort of finger food for a tea party and I used this recipe. It was easy and delicious. I had many compliments on the tiny sandwiches. It brought back fond memories of eating them at my neighborhood deli. I put the olives in the food processor first to chop a bit, and then added the cream cheese and some olive juice. Easy.
