This spread can be made, covered, and refrigerated up to 3 days before serving. For a flavorful dipper with the spread, cut pita bread in wedges, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and thyme, then crisp in the oven.

I'm with the anonymous reviewer. This had a funky taste. It also didn't hang together at all well. Glad I made it the day before the party. Wasted good ingredients on this. Ugh.

This tasted really weird, and I think the guilty party was the olives!  Normally I "test" anything I am going to serve guests, but this sounded so good, I made it the day of my party.  Thankfully I had other appetizers to serve, as this was funky - the olives just don't work with the dates - clash fest of flavor.   I would be tempted to make it without the olives, and maybe add a little cream cheese to improve the texture, but even then, I just don't think this works.
