Creamy, tangy, salty, tart – these are adjectives that well describe this delicious Bacon-Olive Spread. Simply reading the ingredients will have any spread lover’s mouth watering.
The spread’s base is a simple combination of reduced-fat cream cheese and mayonnaise. Its flavor is enlivened with chopped green onion, and bacon adds a smoky saltiness. Old fashioned pimiento-stuffed green olives give this dish a retro flare and a delicious tanginess. Best made a day or two ahead, the spread is delicious with wheat crackers.
