Thursday’s Side Dish: Marinated Olives –N- Cream Cheese

Light and savory are a treat

This dish is a rustic but filling nibbler that’s just right for the Lenten season.  Marinated olives serve as the pivotal ingredient that adds extra zing in every bite.  Meanwhile, the cream cheese lends a rich and smooth element that enhances the olive’s natural flavors.  Spread this seasoned condiment over freshly toasted bread and serve immediately.  Also, this spread makes a great accompaniment to butter crackers or other crunchy wafers.  You could also add a bit of paprika to kick it up a notch while still observing Lent.       

What you will need:

1 small bowl
1 metal spoon
1 cup cream cheese
½ cup marinated olives, diced
Sprinkle salt and pepper

Preparation and Directions:

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well.  Serve immediately or chill for at least 3 hours then serve.
