I got this recipe from a friend who can't remember where she got it. It's different than the usual creamy spreads and is versatile and delicious.

This recipe was great by itself but when I added an 8 oz package of cream cheese and served it with honey wheat pretzel twists and black bread toast points it was gobbled up by all of the guests! Read More

I read the first review and just made this without draining the can of olives (probably would have otherwise) and it turned out very runny definitely not a spread we will have to try using it as a dip instead. It looks like an olive smoothy! I tried a bit it tastes okay but too salty for my taste maybe wouldn't have been so salty if drained and rinsed olives first. Read More

This was a very quick and very tasty recipe. I also used this spread on the Eggplant and Pepper sandwhiches listed on this site... they were AWESOME! I believe you're supposed to use the liquid from the can of olives but I had already drained the olives before I realized that. So I added water to replace the liquid and it still came out quite tasty. Read More

I put in too much garlic so it came out bitter but overall it was good and I'm sure it had potential to be better if it were not for the extra garlic. Read More

I used this in my "eggplant and pepper parmesan" sandwiches. It turned out great! Since the market I went to was actually out of canned olives I got some Turkish olives from the deli. I had to make this in my blender and so I had to use more oil than indicated. Thanks! Read More

Excellent loved it made it for New Years bowl party took some suggestions and added green onions. Think it would be better with Scoops style tortillia chips. Read More

VERY good with items in your pantry! I did one batch with one clove (for a party) and one batch with two (used my mini processor). Loved the two-clove batch but the one clove batch is better for friends. EXCELLENT! Read More
