This is an old recipe of mine which I hadn't made in a long time, but decided to make and take with me to an outdoor gathering.  I hope you like it. It is quick, easy to make and easy to transport.  Here goes:

 

GREEN OLIVE AND WALNUT SPREAD

 

1/3 cup canola oil

3 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 cup stuffed olives

1 cup walnut pieces

1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

Assorted crackers.

 

Combine first seven ingredients in a food processor.  Cover and process just until the spread holds together.  Do not over process: mixture should have a coarse texture.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate.  Serve with crackers.

8 servings.

 

I doubled the recipe.  Really doesn't need much salt, the olives are salty enough.  

Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing with us.  I never liked green olives until about ten years ago, weird I know.  Anyways, I can't get enough of them now lol.😃

@mildoo  Thank you for reminding me. I used to make a similar recipe using jar of olive pieces and pecans. Have misplaced my recipe and am grateful for your posting. How long will this keep in refrigerator?

I think you can refrigerate this for several days as there are no dairy products in this that could spoil, but to be honest I've never had the opportunity to do so.  The spread always went quickly.

It is an eyecatching moment on a holiday table.  As a matter of fact one of the women at this recent gathering that I made this spread for asked me for the recipe.    She is a gourmet cook, not a chef, but she said she wanted to make this for Christmas.  It will make an impression and thank you for your interest.

@mildoo  Thanks for posting this recipe.  I have been invited to a small gathering next weekend and it is going to be finger foods and dips. I have been trying to think of something different, you just made my day and I will be making this dip and take assorted crackers to the gathering.
