My brother had forgotten about putting garlic in it. It makes it so much better. I sometime put quite a bit of garlic. This is just the best simple dip. Our family was horrified, years ago, what a visiting priest made quite a thick sandwich of it. It is so rich!!!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 5 ounces pimento olives (buy the cheaper salad or broken ones...this is plus or minus)
  • 2 tablespoons onions
  • 12 teaspoon garlic (I use more)


  1. Place onion and garlic in food processor and pulverize.
  2. Add olives, drained (set liquid aside). Pulse a few times.
  3. Add the cream cheese and blend.
  4. If you want to thin it a little, add some of the olive juice and blend. This is especially useful if you are serving it right away.
  5. This is best if you let is sit a few hours before you eat it. It is also best at room temp -- nice and soft and flavorful. Best with thin, plain potato chips.
  6. Store in a fridge in a sealed container.
