From Sweet Paul Blog:
Lemon and feta dip
8oz feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, chopped
6 tablespoons olive oil+ extra for serving
Place feta, lemon zest and juice, garlic and olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth.
Spoon into a bowl and drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with thyme.
Serve with grilled tomatoes and grilled pita bread drizzled with olive oil, salt and thyme.
We have a policy in our house to pretty much double the garlic in any recipe and I used a little bit extra olive oil than the recipe calls for… so, again… this can be modified to suit YOUR tastes. I also didn’t have any fresh thyme, though I bet that would be wonderful. I also didn’t serve with grilled tomatoes… but I did serve it with pita chips. It was a super hit. And, yes… people asked for my recipe.
Just a note, squeeze the lemon through your (clean) fingers or a fork to avoid getting seeds into your dip.
If you have even a passing fondness for Feta, you should definitely check this out!Pin It
