No, really. I mean it. Olives in the form of DIP. Ah.may.zing! I know. I always say that, but I DO mean it.

So, hey hey hey! Happy FriYAY! AND Happy Halloween weekend!! What are you going as??? I’m thinking 80’s rock star, again. It’s who I am. Waaaay deep inside here there’s a 1980’s superstar, living in the wrong era.

I love it when these holidays end up on a weekend because then it’s like a whole 3-day party. Tonight we’ll drink in honor of Halloween. Tomorrow we’ll dress up, steal candy from the kids, and again, drink. Then, on Sunday, the plan is to just continue eating the kids’ candy, and drink.

Wanna guess what goes really, REALLY good with a drink? Especially with a cold beer? THIS Olives Aioli Dip with Battered Shrimp! Ya-HA!

First things first: I’m SO excited about STAR’s new olives. We’ve talked about this before and I have to tell you that, so far, every jar that we opened, we inhaled all the olives within seconds.

Today I’ve partnered with STAR to create this simple and wonderful, and chunky and spicy aioli dip with their Hot Pepper Stuffed Green Olives. These are tender Spanish olives with just a bit of extra heat. Perfect to throw into pasta, salads, or enjoy them as an appetizer.

Also, and according to STAR, these olives are cholesterol free, trans fat free, low carb and gluten free.
AND olives naturally contain omega-9 monounsaturated fat and antioxidants including vitamin E.

What does all that mean, you say? In my book, it means eat ’em up!!

This recipe is BOTH a quick football-food appetizer and something that you might feel like you’d order at a restaurant. It’s just a basic recipe for a dip where you throw everything into the food processor and hope for the most delicious thing ever.

The shrimp here are pretty amazing, too. Half of what you see was fried and the other half that you can’t see was baked. I am going to give you the recipe for both versions, but I will admit that the fried ones held together much better and they were crunchier. However, the baked ones weren’t bad at all. Not as crunchy, but overall they were very, very good.

Having said that, and not to be too dramatic or anything, but I’m seriously needing this right now all over again.

Have fun this weekend, don’t get too spooked out, eat allthecandy, and leave room for my Olives Aioli Dip. It goes grrrrreat with Sunday/Monday Night Football!

ENJOY!
