Recipe by Gwena Hedlund
"I got this recipe from one of my cooking classes in college. It's the "old fashioned" type of appetizer, but one that makes a beautiful display on the plate and I never take any home with me because they disappear quickly."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
blue cheese salad dressing
1 (1 pound) loaf
cocktail rye bread
pimento-stuffed green olives, chopped
GREAT!! I peeled & seeded the cuke. Then squeezed out some excess moisture in a paper towel. Chopped it & blended it into the cream cheese mix. Counted out 15 olives, squeezed out some of the excess moisture with a paper towel,chopped them & blended them in.Spread on rye bread, what a hit! This is a keeper.
I thought these were pretty tasty but many of my guests were afraid to try them.
Super easy and really tasty. I alternated black and green sliced olives.
Simply and classy. I like toasting the bread, and sourdough or french bagettes are great also. There is someone who always asks for the recipe anytime I bring this to a party or gathering. Great recipe to keep in an your appetizer collection---Even for the person that doesn't like being in the kitchen--we all know one or two of them :o)
I made this for my cookie exchange party and they were a BIG hit. I served them on sliced french bread and mixed the olives in with the spread and topped with the cucumber and roasted red peppers. I have had a few people ask me for the recipe - I will be making this again (and again!)
These are good to eat as they are to look at! Easy as pie to make, easier actually. I like adding a little good quality (not dollar store) paprika to the cream cheese. Just adds a little more flavor and some color.
I served this to a group that meets monthly and people asked me at the NEXT meeting about those cucumber thingys. Especially nice for spring and summer.
This recipe was deliciously delicious! The olive gives a really nice taste to it, but I tried it with black olives instead of pimento, it tasted really good!
