Olives not only make this creamy layered shrimp dip look pretty, they add a nice flavor twist to an otherwise straightforward party favorite. Crab may be substituted for shrimp.

Yummmy! I mixed in a few drops of hot sauce; then spread a very thin layer of the cream cheese onto a small platter. Because I was having a small dinner party with other appetizers the plate I used was about the size of a salad plate. Smooth the cream cheese all the way to the 'lip' of the plate (reduced the ingredients). Spread an even layer of cocktail sauce over the cream cheese; I think this sauce can be overpowering so keep it thin. Drain frozen baby shrimp well to spread over the top of the cocktail sauce; next, green onions, chpd tomatoes, & finely shredded mozzeralla cheese as suggested by another reviewer. I also left off the black olives. This makes a pretty dish and I like the thin layers to scoop up with the thin triangular shaped Triscuit crackers. I served with Cheese Easy Squares, honey roasted peanuts; as well as blue chips with a artichoke salsa. A hit with my guests!

I have been making this dip for a long time. There are always several people who go crazy for it and insist I make it again for them. I use half cream cheese and half mayonnaise as the base and add a layer of shredded mozarella cheese. It goes great with Ritz crackers.
