The Queen's Spread

READY IN: 10mins

Variation on the familiar olive and pimento cream cheese. Really the fat content on the cream cheese doesn't matter and the type of green olives isn't a huge deal either-this is just the way I like it. I love this spread on bagels, sandwiches, and on crackers for wine and cheese parties.

Yummy! I made a half batch last night with lowfat cream cheese. I don't think I used enough olives - all I could taste was garlic. But it was delicious on whole wheat saltines.
