The weekends have been a bit of a blur lately, so when we were tasked with bringing an appetizer to a potluck, we needed something that didn’t take a lot of prep work. I paged through my cookbooks for options, but nothing was popping out at me. Eventually, I turned to scouring the web and found this great cheese ball on Southern Living‘s site.
I really really love olives, so there wasn’t any talking me out of making this, but upon reading the reviews I did become a little skeptical. Would this just be olives and cream cheese together? Sure, I’d happily eat that, but everyone knows my preferences are a little…unique. 🙂 To jazz things up a bit, I added some garlic and onion powder, and then I let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to really meld. The end result is a salty cheese spread with hints of chive, onion, garlic, and, of course, olives. Delish!
