This dip is so easy and makes a ton! I made it one night when I had a girlfriend over and we didn't even make a dent in it, although believe me, we indulged. The rest of my family and I ended up eating it for snacks over the next couple of days and it just got better as it sat in the fridge. Such a great go-to dip for a party and especially wonderful when you have unexpected company because you can throw this together FAST.
I typically don't like olives, but I do like the tangy flavor in this dip. So, I used already chopped black olives - and when I say chopped, it's more liked minced. The teeny specks of black you see in this dip are really the olives. If you're a fan, feel free to use whole or sliced olives and chop them as small or big as you like.

In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients until everything is combined. Let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving with butter crackers, pretzels or veggies.
