Sounds delicious!

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.

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.
