Or sandwich spread, if you prefer.
Compare this version from the one in the October 25, 1976 edition of the Anderson (Indiana) Daily Bulletin:
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese
Let cream cheese stand at room temperature until soft. Mash with fork and add mayonnaise. Chop pecans and olives and add to cream cheese mixture; also add 2 T. olive juice with a dash of pepper. No salt. Stir well. This will be mushy. It’s supposed to be that way. Put in a pint fruit jar and refrigerate for at least 24-48 hours. Serve on small slices of rye bread or crackers.
