I Love Olives and Cream Cheese Spread

I Love Olives and Cream Cheese Spread created by mums the word

What's not to love? This is an easy make-ahead appetizer that takes 15 minutes to prepare and is so yummy it will be gone 15 minutes after you set it on the table. Pitted black olives and pimiento-stuffed Spanish/Manzanilla olives make it look as colorful as it is delicious. Serve it with crackers or crispinis. I also use it as a sandwich spread...it really spruces up a plain old cold-cut or deli sandwich.

    I nix the olive oil - no olive oil. I nix the salt - no salt as it takes away from the cream cheese flavor! Also, I did not put garlic powder in it at all. I used regular cream cheese, black olives chopped, a lesser amount of green olives chopped, added a couple of tablespoons of the black olive juice, and...totally awesome!!!!

    This was delicious. I added some hot sauce to the mix, plus I used olive brine instead of olive oil, thanks to Michelle S. (whose coffee cake, by the way, is one of my favorites - "Streusel Topped Triple Berry Coffee Cake" - it's amazingly good). <br/>Thanks for the great recipe, CookETC!

    We couldn't stop eating this!!!! I served it on Rye-Krisp crackers and it was awesome. I probably went a little heavy on the olives -- and I still may even bump them up a little more the next time. I also used probably close to 1/8 t. of the seasoned salt. AMAZING!

    If you love olives, this spread is to die for!!! I made it the first time for a holiday party! It looks so festive & tastes soooo good. I used a little less olive oil (2 tbsp. per batch), and it turned out wonderfully. So easy to make too!
