How to make it

  • In a food processor, blend the cream cheese and mayonaise with the green olives and a few thin slices of onion (to taste) until smooth. Thin the mixture to your liking by adding some of the juice from the olive jar. You can also adjust the amount of green olives you include to your preference (start with 2/3 jar and add more as taste desires). Serve chilled with chips, crackers or vegetables.

    What about garlic instead of onion?

    I'm not sure how long it will stay fresh for since it usually doesn't last more than a week around here, if that. But I would think it would keep for a couple of weeks - I'd probably just omit the mayonnaise just to be sure.

    This takes me back to the 50's and cream cheese and olive spread on date and nut bread - that was elegant fare cut into finger sandwiches in those days. Sorry about the geezing.....great recipe!

    This looks awesome. I have a huge jar of olives and this will be perfect to use them up.

    This is one of the first things I ever had at your place. I love this! It's tasty and easy. As a matter of fact, Superbowl Sunday is coming up... I think I'll add it to the menu!

    I haven't tried it with labneh - I'll have to see how that works. Many times, I just omit the mayonnaise altogether, but for people who want richer, creamier flavor, I'd keep it in. You might try it with just plain yogurt too.

    hello friend..

    i suggest to replace mayo with sour cream--or LABNEH...
    IT;S LIGHTER & HEALTHIER..
    what do you think?

    It's so easy that if you have unexpected guests, you most likely have the ingredients sitting around - just toss into the food processor and voila! Goes with just about anything for dipping.

    Thanks - it's such an easy dip. It's my grandmother's recipe - she used to make this for Christmas gatherings.
