"An easy to make great tasting combination of blue cheese and green olives. Once you start eating this you won't stop! I like to spread it on thin wheat crackers."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I have been making this recipe for the past 30 years and my family looks forward to it every Christmas. I use black olives instead of green, roll these in chopped walnuts and serve with onion flavored crackers.
Im sad to say it didnt work well and it was not a hit. =(
So Good! Perfect with a Martini. I thought that the blue cheese might be too strong, but I was so wrong. This recipe was a hit during our Football Party, the men wouldn't step away from the table. Thanks for the great recipe.
I make this with chopped balck olives. It is a hit everytime. This was the dish that showed me I love bleu cheese. I serve it with Triscuts. Always a hit
Don't forget the martini. This was great. I do recommend that you prepare a day before for all the flavors to mold together. The first day you could distictly pick up the butter flavor. As others have said, goes great with wheat thins.
This was really good! I'm an olive and blue cheese lover by themselves, but the taste together was very good! While eating this, I was thinking it would be good warmed in a crockpot and served more as a "dip" than a "ball". I'll have to try that next time. Thanks for the recipe!
This was great and SO simple! I love green olives and bleu cheese, so this was perfect. I made it the night before serving. My grocery store was out of fresh chives, so I subbed 1 TBS. fresh parsley instead. Other than that, made it per the recipe. I plan to make it again for Christmas Eve. Thanks for sharing this recipe--I know my cheeseball family will enjoy it! :-)
Best cheeseball ever, hands down. I make the recipe for 20 or 30, then we eat it for days. I now use gorgonzola instead of bleu cheese for the extra zing. This cheeseball actually seems to get better as it stays out, and in the days after (from the fridge of course). Perhaps it is the cheese getting to breathe. Feel free to add more of whatever you like in the recipe, and there is room to experiment. It also tastes fine if you get the salad olives with pimentos.
