Whipped Feta Dip


Description

This sweet and tangy dip is perfect as an appetizer served with pita wedges or crudités, or spread on Greek Style sandwiches.


Ingredients

8 ounces cream cheese
3/41 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
one pinch ground thyme
1/8 teaspoon dried dill
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup mayo
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (add at the very end if needed, after tasting)
honey, for drizzling on top
12 tablespoons fresh minced parsley


Instructions

Place cream cheese, feta*, mayo, lemon zest, oregano, thyme, dill, and pepper in a food processor (a smaller processor bowl works best since it’s not a huge quantity).  Process until feta is smooth, scraping down the sides when needed.  Add salt at this point, according to taste.

Place dip in a shallow bowl and drizzle honey on top (about 1 tablespoon). Sprinkle with fresh parsley.  Feel free to add more honey as dip is being eaten.


Notes

*feta amount is shown as a range since different brands will vary in flavor and intensity.  Add to your preference.
