Do you like Vodka? Olives? Cheese?
Well, then settle down and read on, have I got a cheese appetizer to see you through the holidaze and beyond!
Cream cheese whipped with sliced Spanish olives, seasonings, and…
Yeah, youbetcha! This is the cheese spread that keeps on giving.
•8 oz cream cheese (softened)
•1 tbsp mayonnaise
•1/4 chopped green olives
•2 tbsp olive juice
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
•1/8 tsp celery salt
•2 tbsp vodka
•1/4 tsp olive juice
•1/2 tsp olives
Church Version (no vodka):
•1 tbsp olive juice
Place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl to soften, then add the ingredients of your preferred version.
Note: I always prefer the vodka version, but some folk do not partake, and I like to serve most everyone who comes to my door.
Whip with an electric mixer until well blended, then stash in a covered jar(s) in the fridge for at least a couple of hours or, always more better, overnight to allow the flavors to come together.
Serve straight from the jar, or, for fun, spoon into martini glasses and garnish with more sliced olives. Spread on crackers, breads, endive leaves, you name it.
