Olive Spread or Cheese Ball

This spread is my favorite!
I first tried it at Judy R.’s house years ago.

It was love at first bite!

Judy and I are just crazy about this concoction.
Our husbands can’t stand it!
This works out well for Judy and me. More for us!!
Judy makes a big bowl of this yummy spread
at the holidays. She and I sit down at her kitchen table
with it and a box of crackers and have a feast!



Olive Spread

8 ounces softened cream cheese

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 cup chopped pimento-stuffed green olives

2 tablespoons juice from the olive jar


Directions:


Mix all the ingredients well. This spread will keep in the fridge for weeks. Serve with crackers. This is a great filling for finger sandwiches, too!

This recipe is easily adapted into a cheese ball. Just increase the cream cheese to 12 ounces and eliminate the olive juice. Form mixture into a ball, and roll in chopped nuts. Serve with crackers.
