Move over french onion dip, there’s a new dip in town. This tangy Green Olive Dip recipe is full of olives, garlic and onions and is a welcome addition to any party menu!
The first time I ate this Green Olive Dip, I fell in love. As I look back on it, the whole scene is quite embarrassing. 5 grown women eating this dip straight from the bowl, no plates in sight, just shoveling it in as fast as we could. It was so addictive that the only time I ate it was when my friend Kim would make if for one of our Book Club girls’ weekends. And then this year, our Book Club weekend didn’t happen, and I had no Green Olive Dip. So I did what any reasonable person did and replicated it myself.
So you can thank me now because Kim doesn’t have a recipe; she just dumps and stirs until the proportions are right. I did the hard work for you and sacrificed doing all of the taste testings so you can make a mouth-watering dip every single time. The hardest thing about this dip? Waiting to eat it. It’s good right away, but once the flavors meld together for a few hours, you will be in dip heaven.
The only thing less embarrassing about this round of dip eating? No one was around to watch how quickly I inhaled in. Now came the true test: Book Club. I hosted last week and served the dip along with a quinoa salad, a riff on this Heirloom grain salad and an apple dessert. Lucky for me (and you), it DID get the Book Club stamp of approval, and that says it all.
