Prep:

10 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1 pkg
(8 oz) cream cheese or neufchatel, room temperature
3 oz
(about half a jar) gr olives, drained - save juice - rough chopped
2-3 oz
(2-3 tbsp) saved olive juice, more or less to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whip the cream cheese, with electric mixer, until smooth.
2
Add the olive juice a tablespoon at a time, mixing well after each addition. You want the cream cheese smooth, easy to spread, but not runny, so you may not use all of the reserved juice.
3
Stir in olives. If you can, allow to stand for 15-20 minutes for flavors to blend. Serve with crackers (I like triskets)
