I brought this to a party to share. It was a beautiful dip, very colorful. I used chopped black olives instead of the kalamata as the kalamata olives were $8 a jar! I didn't think it affected the taste much. I would suggest to others to reduce the garlic from 3 cloves to 1 and then taste and add more if you like it strong. Just thought 3 garlic cloves were overpowering in the cream cheese. A really delicious dip that I will be making again!
I love this dip. It is so fresh tasting and a nice change from the Mexican layered dips. I used the Sabra brand hummus because it's the creamiest I could find. I agree with the previous review, it is a really festive-looking holiday dip. Thanks for posting.
