  • Food processor
  • Serving bowl


Black Olive Dip

  • 430 grams sliced black olives Note1
  • 250 grams cream cheese room temperature, Note 2
  • 2 tbsp olive brine Note 3
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder Note 4
  • 1 tbsp dried onion Note 5
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper


Black Olive Dip

  • Add olives to the food processor and blitz for 5-10 seconds to roughly chop
  • Add cream cheese, garlic powder, dried onion, salt, pepper and olive brine, blitz for 5-10 seconds till all ingredients are consistency mixed in.
  • Serve with pita chips, crackers or veggie sticks



  • Note 1 I buy a tall thin jar of olives that you can purchase at Aldi, Coles or Woolworths. Sliced Olives are good for this recipe as you know without doubt there will be no pits! 
  • Note 2 Cream cheese is very thick and solid. When it comes out of the fridge it is quite firm. It will be MUCH easier to work with (for any recipe) if you let it sit on the bench for a bit as it will naturally soften as it reaches room temperature.
  • Note 3 The olives will be in their own brine (liquid), we drain the olives and reserve some of this brine to add to our dip as it is PACKED with flavour! 
  • Note 4 You will find this in the herbs and spices section of the supermarket. It is a very fine white powder (ie not garlic salt) 
  • Note  5As above you will find this in the herbs and spices section of the supermarket. In a small packed or jar. If you cannot find it, look for onion powder, but don't use regular diced onion as it will be too much (ie omit instead).
