  • 16 oz medium sharp cheese
  • 1/2 jar 5.75 green olives with pimentos drain juice, reserve 2 tbs of olive juice
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs freshly grated onion


  • Freshly grate cheese. (This really makes a difference in taste versus buying it pre-shredded.)
  • Chop green olives.
  • Mix cheese, mayonnaise, and olive juice until creamy.
  • Add in olives and onion.
  • Mix until well blended.
  • Serve or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.


This spread really tastes amazing over rye and pumpernickel bread. However, if you are on a low carb diet, it is great to spread over celery.
