So named because I made this when relatives came into town for my husband's college graduation. This cream cheese and olive mixture makes for a unique texture; the flavors taste best if allowed to meld overnight. It is great served with a small, crusty bread. Its a crowd pleaser!

I love this stuff on bagels as a sandwich spread. I hadn't thought of the sesame seeds but I love them. Toast them a little first for best flavor. Read More

Just didn t think this had a whole lot of flavor. For the most part all I could taste was the cream cheese. Garnished with black sesame seeds for a little contrast. It was OK but nothing that I would make again. SouthernChef sorry wish I d been able to give this a better review. Read More
