This 5-minute Olive Spread is perfect for game day, an after school snack, or a last minute appetizer if you have unexpected guests!
Surely I can fit one more Superbowl-appropriate recipe in before the weekend, especially if it only takes 5 minutes to make, right?!
My mom has been serving up this olive spread since I was a kid. But I only recently found out from her how simple it is. It’s crazy how just 2 little ingredients can produce something so good, but they do!
Olive Spread Ingredients
All you need are two ingredients! Cream cheese and pimiento-stuffed green olives.
You simply place both ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and then serve with crackers.
What Type of Olives to Use
While you can make this olive dip with any type of olive, my absolute favorite way is to use pimiento-stuffed green olives. The flavor combination of cream cheese, green olives, and sweet peppers is just fantastic.
But play around with different types of olives and see which you like best.
What to Serve with Olive Spread
Because olive dip is thick, it’s ideally served with a sturdy cracker like Wheat Thins, so they don’t break. But feel free to use an assortment of your favorites!
This olive spread recipe is perfect for game day, an after school snack, or a last minute bite if you have unexpected guests!
Keep this dip stored in the refrigerator in a tightly covered container for up to 2 weeks
I often make a double batch so we have it to snack on throughout the week or to use as a spread on sandwiches!
