Updated January 27, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (1 cup)
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded (3/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 1 (2 1/4-oz.) can sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/3 cup purchased Italian salad dressing
  • 2 (4 to 5-oz.) containers gourmet spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs
  • Assorted crackers

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, combine mushrooms, zucchini, carrot, onions, olives and dressing; mix well. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • 2
    To serve, spread cheese on 10-inch serving plate. Drain vegetables; spoon onto cheese. Serve with assorted crackers.

  • Zucchini does not need to be peeled if the skin is tender and unwaxed. Grating the skin into the vegetable mixture adds deep green flecks to the spread.
  • Look for spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs in the dairy case by cheese spreads.
  • This colorful appetizer also can be served with breadsticks.
  • This spread can be assembled on a serving plate up to 2 hours in advance. Cover it loosely and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Assemble two smaller serving plates so one can remain chilled while the other is served.
