Easter Carrot Cheese Log

Rated as 2.5 out of 5 Stars

"No carrots are in it, but this eye-catching appetizer was a big hit this Easter (2015). Not too salty and not too spicy... just right! And for me the hostess, it was quick and easy to make - an extra bonus! Serve with crackers, pita chips, or toast. Create your own shape to accent your next holiday or special occasion table."

This was fun! I made as written and even though I'm not quite sure the green olives fit in the dish, I liked them.

Sorry but this spread tasted terrible. The taco seasoning is just not the right combo with the other ingredients. Too salty all around. Fewer olives, maybe a season salt or garlic salt instead?
