This cheesy olive dip comes together in just 30 minutes and is loaded with salty, briny olive flavors that your guests will love! This creamy, crowd-pleasing appetizer can be made up to 5 days in advance so it's the perfect make-ahead dip for your next get-together!
I typically leave them out on my counter for 30-60 minutes (depending on what kind of weather we're having) so that they can soften up a bit. It's more of an issue to have the cream cheese at room temp but it's nice when the sour cream is as well.
For pretty presentation, you can reserve a handful of olives when you're folding them into the dip. Then when the dip is baked toss the reserved olives on top of the dip and garnish with parsley. I like to do this when I'm serving it for guests so that everyone knows there is olives in it.
