Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pitted green olives chopped
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup giardiniera chopped
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 4 oz salami choppes
  • 4 oz provolone cheese choppes
  • 1/4 cup Sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 sprigs parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Chopping/Processing Ingredients:

  • Place the olives, canned roasted bell peppers and drained giardiniera (pickled cauliflower, carrots, celery and peppers) in a food processor fitted with a stainless steel cutting blade and process until everything is finely chopped. If not using a food processor, chop finely with a knife. Move this mixture to a large bowl.
    Using a knife, chop provolone cheese in squares (if you bought it as slices) or cubes if you bought it as a cheese block. Chop salami with a knife as well. Add salami and provolone cheese to the bowl with the other ingredients.

Soften Cream Cheese:

  • To soften 8-ounce block of cream cheese, place the completely unwrapped cheese on a microwave-safe plate and microwave it on high for 15 seconds.
    Add softened cream cheese to a bowl with chopped olives, giardiniera, roasted bell peppers, salami, and provolone cheese. Mix well to combine.

Assembly:

  • Move the mixture into the 9 inch round baking dish (or similar size). Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.
    Bake at 375 F for 25 minutes until cheese is bubbling. Remove from oven and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

Serving Suggestion:

  • Serve hot (or warm) with toasted baguette or the crackers or chips of your choice.
