i'm NOT a dip. i just LOVE dip's. you know, the ones you eat.

i'm joining in on a yummy little thing over at waking up williams, called momma's munchies. i am always looking for some yummy recipes to add to my repertoire.

today's theme is "dips". you all know about my OBSESSION with some hummus, right? well, i am obsessed. i buy them 3 at a time, because i usually eat the whole tub in like, one or two sittings. true story. i'm pretty ashamed of that, but whatever. it's yummy, and not entirely bad for you. so get over it.

BUT i LOVE dips. *note to self-host a dip party. where everyone brings dips. and then leaves so i can eat them all. yes. good idea.* that said, i am excited to share a dip that i LURVE and get a bunch of new recipes in return. win, win.

so here goes. my FAVORITE olive dip (because, i love olives):

1 cup black olives (pitted)
1 cup green olives (pitted)
1 cup kalamata olives (pitted)
2 garlic cloves, peeled
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil

(easy, right, 1, 2, 3)


combine olives and garlic in a food processor. pulse to chop. add vinegar and olive oil. blend until smooth. refrigerate for one hour prior to serving (if possible).

pairs well with stacey's pita chips. or by the spoonful scooped right into your mouth.

i'm a fan of the dip, too. Until you got to olive dip. And my dipgasm was ruined.

A dip party? What a fantastic idea. Too bad we couldn't all get together to share some of our recipes in person and EAT!
