Since I was born my family has prepared the same dishes every year for Thanksgiving! Now I’m not complaining at all…most of the time when we try a new dish we end up saying “Why didn’t we just stick to the favorites?”. This appetizer is one we have during Thanksgiving day while the women are in the kitchen cooking and the men are watching football. It’s the perfect snack that won’t spoil your appetite. If we don’t put this out during Thanksgiving it’s a fact you will get an earful from my Papaw (it’s his favorite!).
- 1/2 cup miracle whip
- 8 oz. jar of green olives
- 2 (3oz) cubes of cream cheese (I always use 1/3 less fat)
- 1-2 tbls olive juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Chop the olives in the food processor. In a small bowl mix olives, mayo, cream cheese and olive juice. Add salt and pepper to your preference. Pair it with Frito’s or carrots and serve.
