Creamy Olive Pecan Spread
By (Published: )
This is a thicker version of the dip recipe that is a major hit, even with people who don't generally like olives on their own. This works with stronger mediums, such as crackers, breads or celery. The olives chosen most for variations of this recipe are black olives or pimiento-stuffed Spanish olives, but personal preference abounds with this dip - choose the ones you love! It is also delicious with fresh or roasted garlic (or both) added, and different toasted nuts such as pinenuts, hazelnuts, cashews or pistachios work beautifully on top.
