I’m gonna go ahead and say, right away, that this stuff rocks. Like – seriously. It is insanely good. If you like feta cheese (and come on – who doesn’t like feta cheese?) then you’ll love this cream of feta dip! Best of all, it could not possibly be easier to make. You need a mere handful of things and the whole thing comes together in about 2 minutes.
Do you remember this post? Yikes – I can’t believe that was pretty much a year ago. Excuse me while I wipe a little tear of reminiscence from the corner of my eye. Well, I digress; my wife was doing some volunteer work and so Willy and I were having some special father and son time and we took a walk around a market, which was a very bad idea. Faced with delicious food I have pretty much zero fiscal responsibility and this wasn’t just any regular market selling fruit, veg, meat and fish. Oh no. This one had a stand from a local farm, selling hen, duck and goose eggs, an Italian stall selling all kinds of meats, pastas and cakes, another place selling freshly grilled chickens, ribs and roast potatoes and finally, my favourite – a big smiley Cypriot guy standing in front of about 30 different buckets of olives, and about 40 different kinds of “salads”. I say “salads” because there were a lot of things like this – Cream of Feta Dip – which I do indeed think is more of a dip, than a salad.
In any case, he kept offering me samples to try, and I kept loving the things he was selling, and so I bought way too much stuff. So much stuff in fact that he gave me a free pot of cream of feta dip, and I’m sure glad he did, because now I’ve figured out how to make it myself, and it rocks.
Cream of Feta Dip
So, feta is feta, right? Sure – it’s crumbly and hard. But imagine it in a dip-able format, with a perfect blend of herbs? It’ll blow a lot of other dips right out of the water, so I’m going to stop here for today and leave you with two words:
A creamy, smooth, feta-based dip, delicately flavoured with mint and oregano.
