Yum! Made for New Year's Eve party and there were no leftovers. I had thought the mixture would be too salty, so I rinsed the olives before I chopped them. I have to say, I wish I hadn't done that - I missed the 'briney' flavor green olives have. Still, it was so good!
This was a big hit with my extended family! I used deli olives instead of canned. I also had only purchased 8 ounces of cheese, but I thought that was plenty. I made the spread the day before and it worked out great.
GOOD stuff! I left out the green onions and used chipotle mayo instead of regular, but it was fabulous! Gave it a nice kick! Served with salad... perfect meal! Isn't Pioneer Woman great?? Can't wait to try more of her recipes. Thanks for posting this one!
Oh my goodness! I found this on Pioneer Woman's web site about two years ago. I have taken it to work functions, family gatherings, and holidays. Everywhere I take it, it is gone in literally 10 minutes. If I bring it out early, it usually doesn't last till the main course. People always ask for the recipe. My cousin recently started making it for her boyfriend, and she doodles it up with meat to make a meal. Either way, it is delicious. My grandmother calls me before holidays to make sure I will bring it! The only precaution: You must love olives. :)
My friend makes this all the time for barbecues and it's all gone in about 5 minutes haha.
Wonderful! This makes a lot, so I made the full recipe and took half of the mayo, butter, cheese mixture and reserved that for garlic bread to have with our meal, and the rest added the olives. With the olive bread, I cut it into pieces for our appetizer.
