Having the best seven layer dip recipe on hand is a must, but there's one thing wrong with most recipes: they're topped with black olives. If you love black olives, having them as layer 6 of 7 is amazing. But if you're not a fan of this divisive ingredient, you have to pick around them. Luckily, we have suggestions for black olive swaps. Switch them out for pickled jalapenos for some heat, black beans for extra protein (while maintaining the color) or some fresh tomatoes for a touch of freshness to the dip!
