Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mix shredded cheese with 4-5 tbsp. mayo. Add pressed garlic, salt and pepper to taste and mix till well combined. It will have a dough-like consistency. *Note: you can reduce the amount of garlic, if don't like the strong garlicky taste.
  • If using black seedless olives, make a slit in each one and stuff with a piece of walnut. If you choose to use any other stuffed olives (pimento, blue cheese, etc.), omit this step.
  • In a food processor chop the crab sticks until finely chopped. Remove to a shallow plate.
  • Take about a tbsp. of cheese mixture and flatten it in your hand like a pancake. Place a stuffed olive in the center. Bring the sides of the cheese mixture up and around the olive, making it into a ball. Use more cheese if needed.
  • Roll the cheese ball in the crab mixture. *Note: if using real crab meat, season it first to taste. These are filling, so plan 2 per serving.

    Hi Julia, nice pics and a interesting recipe. You know that all black olives in cans are really green olives. Once they have cured the green olives they subject them to oxidation and they turn black. If they didn't the can would have all colors of green olives and customers would think some are not good. So black is the new green :-). Or is it green is the new black? Hmmm Best as always, JJ.
