Beautiful and the dip is delicious! I added sugar snap peas to the veggie mix.

This was delicious, and better yet, quick and easy. The only problem is, the ingredients don't list onions, yet the directions say to add them with the olives. So I tried it with 1/4 cup finely diced red onion, and it was delicious.
