Uptown Westerville Farmers Market: Our first Recipe! Kalamata Olive Spread from Varley Valley

Kalamata Olive Spread on Parmesan Peppercorn Wheat Bread

From: Jane Varley, Varley Valley Products, Breads, Baked goods, and Jams.

Jane says: "This makes an elegant and very easy finger sandwich for a tea or just a quick snack."


1/2 cup chopped, pitted Kalamata Olives (or your favorite, strongly flavored olive)
8 oz. (Large Package) Cream Cheese
Varley Valley Parmesan Peppercorn Wheat Bread

▪ Chop pitted kalamata olives (or your favorite, strongly flavored olive).

▪ For each 1/2 cup of chopped olives, add 8 ounces (a large package) of cream cheese and mix well.

▪ Thinly slice (1/3 to ½ inch) some Varley Valley Parmesan Peppercorn Wheat Bread (refrigerating the bread makes it a bit easier to slice).

▪ Spread a slice with some of the olive mixture and top with another slice.

▪ Cut the sandwich into quarters (you can cut off the crusts first if desired).

To serve: Take a fancy party toothpick and skewer a well-drained whole pitted olive. Push a skewered olive (upright), into each piece of the quartered sandwich.

▪ If desired, add a thin slice of cucumber or fancy cut carrot.

▪ Serve at room temperature.
