Whipped Feta Dip

Lynn demonstrates Whipped Feta Dip.  This is a delicious appetizer served with pita chips, toasted baguette or vegetables.  You could take this to a Holiday party or any get together.  Adapted from thekitchn.com.

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces feta cheese, softened at room temperature for 1 hour
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature for 1 hour
  • 1-3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-Virgin Olive oil, to garnish
  • Ground cayenne pepper, to garnish

Blend the feta cheese in a small food processor until it breaks up.  Add the cream cheese and continue blending for 4-5 minutes, adding milk if necessary to keep the mixture smooth.

When the cheese is whipped and very smooth , add the lemon zest, chives, salt, and a generous quantity of black pepper.  Blend to combine, then transfer to a serving dish and drizzle lightly with olive oil.  Dust lightly with ground cayenne, if desired.

Serve with chopped vegetables, pita chips or toasted baguette.
