My family has made a variation of this dip for over 40 years. Leave out the Catsups and add a little juice from the olive jar to thin the cream cheese. You also get a different favor if you process over chop your olives (we like Chopped). Great (addictive) with potato chips or prezels. Read More

I didn't think it was that good. I followed the recipe exactly and took one of the suggestions of a fellow reviewer by rinsing the olives first to eliminate salt. It was still salty and the ketchup did nothing for it. I had enough ingredients to make a modification based on suggestions of other reviewers. I washed 10 medium sized olives. I placed them in a blender with 8oz cream cheese and 6 TBSP of mild taco sauce. For the final touch I sprinkled the top with shredded cheddar cheese. This turned into a olive tasting southwestern dip. I'm glad I did a trial run before serving the original to my co-workers. I'm sure they would thank me!:) Read More

Have had this for years in different social circles but didn't know the measurements until I found it here. Omitted the ketchup (have never had it looking pinkish but to each his own). Simple and delish. I added a few tablespoons of olive juice as suggested (to taste - I went with 3 tbsp for a half batch) to give it extra flavor. Chilled for two hours and it was all melded. I only made a "half" batch with 1 block of cream cheese and half a jar of the green olives. Read More

5 stars for ease, speed, taste, and appearance. Tasted better on the 2nd day. We used it as a spread on crackers. Yum! Read More

I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I made it for an office party and it was a huge hit! I used cocktail sauce instead of the ketchup as one reviewer suggested. Easy & yummy recipe! Read More

We have been making this dip for years! It is super simple and yummy. Sometimes we also will make it without the ketchup and that's really good too. Either way it's wonderful!:) Read More

This is the craziest recipe! It was surprisingly good. It was midnight before I remembered that I was having a potluck at work today so I needed a recipe with few ingredients that I had on hand as the store was closed. If you are unsure about your fondness for green olives this probably isn't a recipe for you. But I tell you what I got several requests for the recipe and my bowl was pretty much licked clean. Don't omit the ketchup...I know I was skeptical but it adds the right amount of secret flavor so it doesn't seem like you just bit into a brick of cream cheese with a mouth full of olives. This is actually a keeper. Read More

Like others said way too salty. I probably added too much juice. Other than that it's good! I also left out the ketchup and put in a 1/2 cup of sour cream. This made is creamy! Read More
