This is a fantastic twist on the average party dip. Good with stiff crackers (like Wheat Thins) as well as veges. Here are the variations I use. (This may solve the saltiness another reviewer mentioned.) Half the recipe. Add sour cream (about 1/4 to 1/3 C if you're halfing the recipe). Substitute 1/4 C of chopped green ONION for the green olive. I blended the cream cheese sour cream and shredded cheese in a food processor first. Then stirred in the other ingredients by hand. Spread in a shallow dish. Garnished with a sprinkle of paprika and a tiny mound of chopped black olives in the middle. Read More

This was good. Definately different than any other appetizer I've ever made. The only downside - just a little too salty for me. Maybe next time I would dd garlic powder versus garlic salt. Thanks Read More

This is a very good dip however this is a large batch and would recommend cutting it in half if you have other appetizers with it. I also added in onion since I can't seem to live without them. This is the second time making this. I made last summer and it was a hit. I think I added onion automatically. I also added a little sour cream to soften the texture. This is a great recipe it is a keeper. Read More

This was a great dip!! Everyone that tried it has asked for the recipe. I did cut the recipe in half because I only made it to satisfy a craving. It was so good I took some to work to share! The only thing I would do differently like another person suggested is to add some sour cream to the recipe to soften it up. Read More

First of all this recipe makes a ton of dip.I would say it makes about 5 cups. Second of all it s not good. All you can taste is olive and cayenne pepper. I had already made it and didn t want to waste so many ingredients so I doctored it up with more salt and more mustard and I just hope that serving it on a wait then will add some extra flavor but it s not wicked good but any means. Trust me don t waste your time! Read More
