For the veggie lovers who are looking for a way to elevate bite-sized vegetables or crackers on-the-go, this salty olive dip is the perfect accompaniment. It’s a go-to for quick + easy snacking, and transitions perfectly into a cocktail hour crudité platter.


Serves 4

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 c ricotta cheese
  • Zest from half a lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 green onion, chopped 
  • 1 tbsp olive juice
  • 2 c large olives with pimentos, drained
  • 1/2 tsp green onion for garnish, chopped


  1. Place cream cheese, ricotta cheese, lemon zest, garlic clove, and chopped green onion in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Add the olive juice and olives to the cheese mixture and pulse until olives are chopped throughout the dip and well incorporated.
  3. Garnish with green onions and sliced green olives. 
  4. Serve with a crudité platter and your favorite crackers.

Store refrigerated in a mason jar.


  • Before you hit the road, pack the dip, veggies, and crackers into a metal lunch box lined with parchment paper. You can keep items cool with a small ice pack underneath the parchment paper. 
  • When ready to enjoy, simply dip veggies in a mason jar of dip for a handheld snack. 
  • Remember to pack small bowls, or plates, as well as spoons and napkins to make serving easier. 
  • If you happen to have any leftover dip, place extra dip in a small mason jar, add ribbon, and a note around the top and give it as a gift to your neighbors and friends!
