This recipe is from the mother of children I went to school with in the 1950s.

2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup green pepper
1/2 cup celery
1/4 cup olives
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsps lemon juice
5 drops hot pepper sauce
1 cup cracker crumbs

Finely chop the green pepper, celery, and olives and mix with the sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce. Line a 4-cup bowl with clear plastic wrap. Spread 1/2 cup of the sour cream mixture in the bottom of the bowl. Layer with half of the cracker crumbs, then 1 cup of the sour cream mixture, 1/2 cup of the crumbs, then the remaining sour cream mixture. Cover and chill for 24 hours. Unmold onto a serving platter; remove the plastic wrap. Top with the remaining cracker crumbs. Serve with fresh vegetables and assorted crackers.
