Dip into green and red at your next Holiday get together. This was an all time favorite at our house growing up during the holidays. My mom is not a cook--this is an understatement! (sorry mom) But this dip is one of her specialties, and it is mmm.... mmm.... good!
What will you need?
1. 8 oz. of Whipped cream Cheese
2. 1 cup. of Mayo (I use light mayo)
3. 1 can of sliced olives with pimentos (This is probably about 16 oz. or around 2 cups)
4. 2 small packages of chopped pecans
--In a medium size bowl, empty the container of whipped cream cheese and add the mayo. Mix together until blended. Set aside
--Drain the can of olives so you are left with no juices. In a food processor or with a sharpened knife chop up the sliced olives into smaller pieces. Add to the cream cheese and mayo. Stir all ingredients together. (you will start to see the red and green holiday themed dip)
--Then add one bag of pecans. If you like a lot of pecans add the second.
--Let this sit in the refrigerator for about 30 min. From here you can mold into a ball. If you would like to roll in additional pecans you can do this as well. I opted not to this time.
I have posted a pic.
Serve with crackers of your choice!
All the best,
