Green Olive Dip


For awhile now Facebook has become another place to find recipes to make. But unfortunately the recipes do not always come with a link, especially if it is a video. If I am really interested in the recipe I will typically scroll through the comments to see if I can find a link. If I can't find a link then I end up searching the internet or Pinterest.

This happened to be one of those recipes that I had to find. See I love olives, especially green ones and when I saw a dip that incorporated green olives as the star of the dip I knew I needed to find a recipe and make it. However, I encountered a slight problem. I found two green olive dips and could not decide which one to make. So I decided to make the dip that seemed similar to the one I saw on Facebook and originally went looking for. Check back tomorrow to see the other green olive dip I found and made.

This green olive dip is perfect for any green olive lover. It is simple to make and the flavor of the green olives really shines in this dip.

Green Olive Dip
Ingredients:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons olive juice, from the jar of olives
1/2 cup sliced green olives, drained and roughly chopped

Directions:
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the mayonnaise and olive juice and beat until well mixed. Stir in the olives. Refrigerate until well chilled. Serve with crackers or chips.

Enjoy!!!
