Pimento Olive Dip



On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I went to a small party at a friend’s house.  One of the appetizers at the party was an amazing olive dip.  When I asked about the recipe in hopes of remaking it, my friend told me she had used a mixture of sour cream, cream cheese, and a packet of olive dip mix.   Sadly, I had no packet of olive dip mix.

I eventually came across Pimento Dip recipe and that, along with my memory of that New Year’s dip, came up with this lovely concoction.  Stuffed full of olives and not lacking in flavor, this is perfect for your next get together!

And if you happen to have a bit of dip leftover, might I suggest it as delightful addition to your sandwich-yum!



Recipe Notes:
*This dip is pretty versatile.  It can be served in a bowl or shaped into a cheese ball.

1 tsp dill
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder

Stir together all of the ingredients until completely combined.  Form into a cheese ball, if desired.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Remove the dip from the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving to soften.  Serve with pretzels, tortilla chips, or crackers.
