Green Olive Spread

"This is the easiest recipe ever! It's so addictive too. Great for potlucks, buffets, etc. It literally takes minutes to make, but does need a couple hours to chill. Cook time is chill time."

  1. My mom made this all the time for the holidays when I was growing up. We love it on bread as a sandwich but our favorite is to spread it on celery sticks just like you would peanut butter...mmmmhhmmmm good! I can't do Thanksgiving or Christmas without it!
  2. Well, how easy is this and yet so flavorful. We are big olive fans and this was right up our alley...the cream cheese and green olives go perfectly together. This is a great recipe when you are short on time and yet need to come up with a quick appetizer. Thanks for sharing this winner, Amanda Beth, can't wait to make it again.


<p>I live in TN with a husband, 9 year old, 6 year old, and our two dogs. I'm a busy mom who loves to cook for family and friends. We have two boys, and they are the light of my life! My husband is a restaurant manager. We actually met while working together at Bob Evans in another city. He was one cute grill cook!! Now he is one cute manager, and I am so proud of him! He currently works for El Chico, and he is very happy there. <br />I am a stay at home mom who sometimes does temp work, which is a big change from corporate America. We'll see how that goes. Now that I have some more time, I plan to get back to the kind of cooking I used to do. You know...with pots and pans instead of a take out menu. I love to crochet, garden and hike with the family. Thanks in advance for any reviews you do of my recipes. :)</p>
