Muffaletta Olive Spread; perfect for summer entertaining


Muffaletta Olive Spread

I love Olives, all kinds, I love cajun food, all kinds, I love snacks and appetizers , so this Muffaletta Olive Spread is perfect for me!    It starts off with a delicious yet easy recipe for Olive Salad that I make in larger batches and keep on hand for quick and easy meals.



To that basic recipe I add just four ingredients

  • Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Garlic
  • Salami or Mortadella, cubed or chopped


Stir it all up and that’s it!    Honest you can make Muffaletta Olive spread in less than 5 minutes if the Olive Salad is already made, and in 10 minutes if you are starting from scratch.  Once the Muffaletta Olive Spread is prepared, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week, so I like to make mine ahead and let the flavours really develop.


What to make with Muffaletta Olive Spread?

This Olive Spread is bursting with flavour, and the cream cheese base makes is super versatile.   Here are some of my favourite uses.

  • Serve with crackers for a last minute appetizer
  • Spread inside prepared celery sticks
  • Add a bit more sour cream to make it a dip; serve hot or cold
  • Muffaletta Quesadillas
  • Muffaletta Cheesy Bread
  • Friday Night Muffaletta Sliders
  • Baked Muffaletta Dip with Pita Crisps
