This green olive dip is so speedy fast you will have time for makeup and hair before the party! A great 3-ingrediet appetizer for busy moms.
Ever since we were small we have loved olives. We are amongst the olive-lovers of the world, the great and clever group. And, our love isn’t specific to black or green as many olive-lovers are. We love them both. Perhaps it has something to do with our need to eat foods rich in vitamin E (olives have a good amount!). It might just be because they taste good.
[info_box type=”warning_box”]If your child hasn’t yet discovered the fun of putting olives on their fingers…introduce them! Even if they have, join in the fun of playing with your food! [/info_box]
Did you know there’s actually more than just green and black olives? There are several types, all with different flavors. For a fun appetizer, serve multiple kinds of olives with toothpicks.
Either way, we stay stocked with black and green olives for eating, pizza-making, dips, bruschetta’s, sandwiches, you name it.
This green olive dip is one of our faves because of how fast and easy it is. It is a great dip base to throw in additional ingredients if you would like to use them, although we usually make up this basic version, grab a stack of crackers, and sit for afternoon meetings chowing on olive dip and crackers. Yum!
