I can’t believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away.   I love Christmas.  The friends, the family and the food!    The food!

Every year on Christmas eve, my mom makes the most amazing appetizers!  My favorite Christmas memories revolve around spending time with my loved ones on Christmas Eve over drinks and delicious appetizers with Christmas music playing.

When Mezzetta Olives asked me to come up with a holiday-inspired dish using their olives, I knew that I wanted to make an appetizer, a healthy dip.

Green Olive

I happen to love green olives.   After successfully  making a sweet ricotta dip last week, I decided to make a savory one.  I added a few of my favorite ingredients to make this dip killer.

Greek Yogurt.

Parmesan Cheese.

Ricotta Cheese.

Mezzetta Green Olives. 

Lemon.

Yummy.

I made this Green Olive and Ricotta Baked Dip in these teeny casserole dishes I found at Pier One.  You could also make this dip in a small casserole dish as well.
