Green Olive Dip

Is anyone else obsessed with 24 Live Another Day like I am? When I found out the Jack Bauer was coming out of retirement and returning to television this summer, I couldn't have been more thrilled. My family and I followed the show religiously and we were very sad to see the show go off the air in 2010. Ingredients

Last night we all sat in front of the TV, watched Jack Bauer save the day, drank a little red wine and chowed down on some snacks.

Green Olives

This recipe has been a favorite in the Engstrom household for quite a while. If you're a green olive enthusiast like I am, this recipe is a perfect snack or appetizer. With no cooking involved, it is a quick and easy to whip up right before a party. You can use this dip with just about anything, but I prefer using Triscuits. The crunch of the cracker with the delicious flavors in the dip make an amazing combination.
