At 8:16 last night I frantically remembered I had a food day at work tomorrow...by 8:35 i had whipped up some Lemon Feta Dip (time includes running to the grocery store & prep). In other words, if you need a delicious but super quick appetizer, this is a life saver. Also if you are like me, aka cheap, it is super economical. I go for the off brands but feel free to splurge if your heart desires :)
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
1. Place feta, lemon zest and juice, garlic and olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Spoon into a bowl and drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with thyme.
3. The sky is the limit on how to use this amazing dip, serve with veggies, grilled pita bread drizzled with olive oil, salt and thyme or even put inside a pita for a sandwich. Would also be good with pretzels!!!
