Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I am going to make this recipe and serve it as a dip for vegetables with bread and cracker rounds! It sounds absolutely Scrumptious. Now I must add it to my recipe box.
Delicious! Very easy to make. Great for parties, or any time! Just add bread or chips.
Different taste - will make again
This was a totally different recipe for me. Don't usually use green olives. Easy to prepare. Very tasty. Served with oven baked fish.
