Hi there! I know it’s been a really long time since I’ve shared a new recipe. I promise to make up for it soon. And to kick off some new recipes, what is a better reason than a certain big football game coming up? Do you love football game day foods? Today, I really wanted to share a super easy appetizer for you. It only has three ingredients, so you know it’s easy. And for the cooking adverse — no oven or stove top required!
So pretty much, this dip is for everyone.
My mother in law introduced me to this dip about 10 years ago. I never had the cream cheese & black olive combination before — I was instantly hooked. Once I found out how easy it was to make (and scale it in size), it’s become a go-to dip for parties. I always use Lindsay olives for this recipe, because they really ‘pop’ against the cream cheese.
You can choose a yellow onion or a sweet onion for this black olive dip. I prefer the flavor of the yellow onion better for this recipe. You’ll want a sturdy cracker to pair with the dip. I serve mine with Triscuits or Wheat-Thins.

[For more info, click here] Lindsay also has dozens of recipes. From simple appetizers to several Pinterest worthy dinners, I was really inspired to start using olives in our diet.
If you’re feeling especially lazy, simply chop up your black olives and the onions in a food chopper! Mine is used pretty often. 😉
