Ingredients

  • 1 pkg
    (8 oz) cream cheese or neufchatel, room temperature

How to Make Green Olive and Cream Cheese Spread

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)
