Recipe: The super-easy feta cheese dip that everybody loves

Sanne: This feta cheese dip is super-easy and very quick to make. Perfect as a snack before dinner or to bring along to a potluck party. I usually add sun-dried tomatoes or roasted red peppers (the ones in oil are the best), but you could also add olives or tapenade, or anything you feel like:) I mix the ingredients with a fork because I like the chunky texture, and the rustic, homemade look the dip gets, but you can also use a food processor. As for the feta cheese, make sure you use one made from sheep’s milk. The ones from cow’s milk, (which isn’t actually feta), will not have the same creaminess and will lack the characteristic, sharp, feta flavor.

Delicious with the Nordic Crisps from Hungry Bird Eats or with mixed vegetable sticks.

This feta cheese dip is super-easy and very quick to make. Perfect as a snack before dinner or to bring along to a potluck party. I usually add sun-dried tomatoes or roasted red peppers (the ones in oil are the best), but you can also add olives or tapenade.

Ingredients

  • 1 block 1 feta cheese ~90oz (250g)

  • 4 tablespoons 4 olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons 2 fresh lemon juice

  • 1-2 1-2 roasted red peppers or 3-4 sun-dried tomatoes (the ones in olive oil are the best for this recipe)

  • 2 2 garlic cloves (crushed or finely chopped)

  • Cayenne pepper

Directions

  • Mash the feta cheese with a fork and mix in the olive oil in a bowl.
  • Add the finely chopped, roasted pepper or sun dried tomatoes to add some flavor and a nice red color to the dip.
  • Add a little cayenne pepper to make the dip just spicy enough, but forget about adding salt, as the feta is very salty on its own.
