Cheesy Olive Dip

I haven’t met an olive that I did’t like, I think I have covered my love for the, what I lovingly call, forbidden fruit. It comes from my mother, she would eat them all day everyday, as would my nanny. What can I say, we love em!

It’s kinda a play on my olive cheese bread, which originated first from The Pioneer Woman, so props where props are do, thanks Ree.

This is not as heavy and its a fun dip for Summer, but it’s comfort level does scream Fall to me! Most often that is when I make dishes like this, but I had a craving that I couldn’t suppress!
