Delicious dip - especially for olive lovers and those wanting to be. I used fresh dill and parsley and also garnished the bread bowl with extra olives and dill - incredible!

YUMMY!!! I made this for just myself (and I'm glad I'm not sharing it! LOL) and it is wonderful. I omitted the seasoning salt (as I felt the olives were salty enough) and I added some granulated garlic and a pinch of paprika! Will make this again and again! Thanks for sharing.

As a black olive loving family, I thought this would go over well for a BBQ. The problem was that the seasoning salt overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. I will try this again, but using only 1/2 tsp of seasoning salt. Also, I used round italian bread as I could not find pumpernickel.

I have made this recipe now three times. It has become one of my favorites. I don't always do the bread bowl but serve it with Pita chips.

I love olives and I love bread but I didn't enjoy eating this dip. I should of taken the advise from the previous review and taken out the seasoning salt. It was far to salty to even consume. I also had a lot of trouble finding pumpernickel bread so I opted out for a Cob.

This was okay...I followed the recipe exactly, but noone seemed too thrilled with it. I dont think I'll make it again.

This is highly addictive. And when I was putting the olives in my DH asked me if I was for sure doing it right. LOL I will be making this for the get togethers I throw every once in a while....fast, easy, and oh so good! Thanks Tara!
