1 (10 ounce) can
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
extra virgin olive oil
This recipe was great by itself, but when I added an 8 oz package of cream cheese and served it with honey wheat pretzel twists and black bread toast points, it was gobbled up by all of the guests!
I read the first review and just made this without draining the can of olives (probably would have otherwise) and it turned out very runny, definitely not a spread, we will have to try using it as a dip instead. It looks like an olive smoothy! I tried a bit, it tastes okay, but too salty for my taste, maybe wouldn't have been so salty if drained and rinsed olives first.
This was a very quick and very tasty recipe. I also used this spread on the Eggplant and Pepper sandwhiches listed on this site... they were AWESOME!
I believe you're supposed to use the liquid from the can of olives but I had already drained the olives before I realized that. So I added water to replace the liquid and it still came out quite tasty.
I put in too much garlic so it came out bitter, but overall it was good and I'm sure it had potential to be better if it were not for the extra garlic.
I used this in my "eggplant and pepper parmesan" sandwiches. It turned out great! Since the market I went to was actually out of canned olives, I got some Turkish olives from the deli. I had to make this in my blender, and so I had to use more oil than indicated. Thanks!
Fabulous!! I added 1 green onion and seasoned it with salt and pepper. This is definitely a keeper.
Excellent, loved it made it for New Years bowl party, took some suggestions and added green onions. Think it would be better with Scoops style tortillia chips.
A good start but really watery. I'm not sure if you are supposed to drain the cans or not. Perhaps ok for a sandwich but on a cracker alone, not so much...
