AMAZING Creamy Pimento Olive Dip

Ok, I don’t claim to say that every single recipe that I post is amazing.  I think they are all delicious, but to call something amazing, it really has to blow your sox off.  This Creamy Pimento Olive Dip is…seriously…AMAZING!  It is AMAZING because it is so addictively delicious.  And, it is AMAZING because it only has 4 simple ingredients.  It’s creamy, salty, briny, tangy, and perfect!

I came up with this dip recipe when I was catering and it was and still is a go-to dip for anytime I am entertaining.  This is a super creamy dip with the salty and briny delicious olive flavor, sweetness from the pimento, and tang from the cream cheese, and the smoothness from the sour cream, all balancing each other out to create this magical combination. Add packaged ranch dip mix to round out the flavors and make it the perfect unexpected vegetable or chip dip. Leave the sour cream out and it’s a great cracker spread!

Easiest Prep Ever for this Olive Dip!

Four simple ingredients and a mini food processor and you are set!  You can make this up to 5 days in advance.  It’s great to munch on throughout the week or serve at a get together with friends and family.

Can I use Yogurt instead?

You can use yogurt in place of the sour cream.  However, for the thick and creamy texture, you will want to use the cream cheese.  Leaving this out and only using yogurt will be an overly thin dip and very tangy flavor.

What to do with the leftover olives?

Try using them in any of these recipes!  I love them in my Creamy Olive Chicken Bake or used in my One Pot Spanish Chicken and Rice.  They also make a fantastic snack!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Whipped Cream Cheese or 8oz regular softened
  • 1/2 cup Sour cream
  • 3/4 cup Pimento Stuffed Green Olives
  • 1 tsp Ranch Dip Mix

Instructions

  1. In a Mini Food Processor, add the olives and pulse until finely minced with most pieces about the size of rice, but still with some larger chunks.  Scoop out the olives into a bowl and set aside.

  2. Add the cream cheese to the food processor (no need to clean it after the olives).  Pulse until smooth and creamy.  Add the sour cream and pulse again until fully combined and smooth and creamy again.  (Note, if you want to use this as a spread for crackers, leave out the sour cream) 

  3. Add in the ranch dip, and pulse to combine completely. 

  4. Scoop the cream cheese mixture out into the same bowl with the olives and mix to combine.  Serve with veggies or pita chips or any other favorite chips.
