    I omitted the chives since I did not have any on hand. This recipe turned out EXACTLY like a cream cheese olive spread that I order at a local deli! Very easy, and I would definitely make it again.

    So easy to make- had all the ingredients on hand. Friends who didn't like olives even loved it... so did my 3 year old!

    While this is a very simple recipe to make, there is just nothing special about it. None of the flavors really pop out. It's just a so-so recipe.

    My husband and I LOVE green olives, but this recipe is a dud. There's no melding of flavors. You'd get the same, or maybe better, flavor if you spread plain cream cheese on a cracker and put an olive on top. Guests were not impressed by this spread. I served at an annual get together where we eat lunch and then pull the food back out again for dinner - even with two go-rounds, this was barely touched.

    I thought this recipe was very good and was enjoyed as an appetizer at my dinner party! Will keep this one in my back pocket. :)

    After reading reviews, I decided to add some seasoning -- pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. I also used a heaping 1/2 cup of chopped olives. No salt is needed because of the salt in the olives. I left it as a spread, omitting the chives and pecans. After sitting in the refrigerator to let flavors mingle, all I can say is that it was absolutely delicious!
