Tom’s Garlic Sandwich Spread

This mixture serves not only as a change-of-pace spread for hamburgers and sandwiches, but also, when topped with a sprinkle of paprika, it makes a tangy dip for celery, carrots, etc. Options are available to match your personal taste.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of your favorite ground, spicy, Cajun or Dijon mustard
6 to 8 green olives, coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
