hungry?

yum.


i bought a huge container of feta intending to make some sort of dip for a potluck this weekend.  after checking out a few recipes, i decided upon this one from MyRecipes, but made a few changes.

feta spread

12 oz. feta crumbles
3 Tbsp. lemon grapeseed oil (i get mine from wildtree)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. diced pepperoncini pepper rings (i doubled that)
1 tsp. minced garlic ( i used 3 garlic cloves)
1 tsp. oregano
fresh cracked black pepper
1 Tbsp. red pepper flakes

blend together in a food processor - i used my oster immersion blender, like this one:



and wowza it's good.  like, there might not be anything left for the fish fry if i don't get a little self control.



i'm serving it up with pita chips and sweet red peppers.  right into my mouth.  yum.

UPDATE - troy took this to the party for me (sawyer was sick) and the next day my MIL was telling me about this nasty stinky cheese dip someone brought!!  she thought it was awful!  i said, umm, that was my dip, lol.  so, i guess it's a matter of taste, huh?  :)

Too funny. I made a BLT dip once that I thought was wonderful. It doesn't look the best... but, whenever I took it to a party, etc I was the only one eating it. Strange, since it's soooo good. How can cream cheese, sour cream, bacon and chopped tomatoes eaten with fritos be anything but good? Yup, we all have our own taste as to what's good. BTW, I love feta cheese too.
