This dip was indeed fabulous. We dropped some off at a Christmas party, because stupidly we had chosen that day to paint the kitchen.When we returned, every drop of the dip had been eaten!!! A party guest raved to me about the yummy dip, and she seemed sincere. We only could spend forty five minutes at the party, because we had to pick up BG at a babysitting gig. That was the extent of our Christmas socializing. Amazingly enough, I wanted more, and not just because I was eyeing the cookies..
Here is the original recipe. If you are the person who first posted it, please let me know, so I can give you credit. I didn't follow the recipe proportion wise, but instead, dumped large amounts of all of the ingredients into a bowl. That cooking style has served me well, and if I can get away with less measuring cups to wash, I am all for it.

"How many tea towels, and dishrags can you dirty each day?"
12 oz finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 tomato, chopped
12 stuffed green olives, chopped
5 green onions, chopped (white part only)
4 oz can green chili peppers, chopped
4 oz can black olives, chopped
1/2 cup Italian dressing (I used fat free, as it cancels out the fat from the cheese, much in the same way that Diet Coke erases calories from chocolate cake)
Mix everything together and add the dressing right
