Does anyone else love feta as much as I do? This Spicy Feta Dip is for you then! Think salty feta with a kick. Ugh, I can eat this by the spoon full, I did actually today after making it. Whoops. It’s so good though. No shame at all because its worth it. I just couldn’t wait for the pita chips to get out.
Spicy Feta Dip
- 10 oz feta
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 roasted red peppers
- 1 ½ tbsp red wine vinegar
- ¼ -⅓ tsp crushed red pepper
- Break up feta and combine all ingredients in mixer and blend until thick dip
- Add more oil if needed
I love this as a snack to watch a movie or game. It’s always a hit in the summer as an alternative to a cheese plate. This can be served with pita chips, carrots, celery, cucumbers, anything really. It’s a refreshing taste your friends will appreciate from the typical cheese plate or dip.
Recently we made Healthy Mediterranean Bowls and topped it off with this spicy feta dip. Instead of just topping that with feta, it gave it a punch of flavor. Phillip and I have used this as a spread on a veggie filled sandwich. You can add it on many things, I wonder how it would if we broke it down to a sauce? Mmm, with some linguine and capers. Maybe a little chicken mixed in as well. Writing that down to make soon!
How do I store this?
Make sure to keep this in an air tight container in your fridge as this is a potent smell. We love these Pyrex or Anchor glass containers. Plastic containers are a thing of the past, although I have to admit we still have some in the house. Sometimes they are just really convenient and lightweight to use for leftovers or even meal prepping.
But as we toss more and more plastic containers for the glass containers I’m sure within the next year we will be plastic container free! Woo!! No more of trying to organize the storage container drawer cause the glass one’s already look pretty in the cabinets.
From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
