This spread is my signature dish for parties. It's very easy and pretty tasty. I haven't brought home any leftovers yet. Serve in a martini glass for effect with quality crackers.

I was trying to come up with an equal counterpart to Robert Rothschild's jarred Dirty Martini Dip as I haven't been able to find it at my local Hallmark store. I have to agree with the other reviewers--the vodka taste is too strong and it needs more olives. I did used pimento stuffed olives and I added in a quarter cup of chopped jalapenos. Even after sitting, the vodka taste did mellow but it was still way too strong. I'd like to play with this recipe. I think it's close, but it's missing a little somethin'-somethin' or two. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

This was a sure hit!! I'll be making it many more times. Be sure to chill it for at least two hours or overnight is even better. I would leave out the vodka for a church social or school potluck...or maybe just keep it a secret and change the name to olive dip!! Read More

WOW. Really --- WOW. I made this for a Ladies Only Xmas party. When we go out for dinner we always get Dirty Martinis so I thought this would be appropriate. It was. It was a huge hit. The only minor change that I made was to add some garlic powder. (Sorry I am a garlic head.. can't resist.) If you like olives and vodka --- you will love this. I'm planning on taking it to the next party I go to. Serving in the Martinin glass looks really cute. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This would have been good without the vodka. I put in only half of what the recipe called for and made it the day prior to my party but it was still very strong. Read More

I like it better without the vodka and use chopped pimento stuffed olives and a few dashes of seasoned salt use only enough olive juice to make it spreading consistency. Really good on toasted rye cocktail bread. Read More

This is great with pumpernickel stick crackers or pumpernickel melba toast. I left out the vodka for a family function and we loved it! It can tend to get salty so you do have to watch it. I used pimento-stuffed olives. Read More
