Summer is here! Well, almost…

This is a recipe you are going to love serving on those hot summer days! Barely any cooking (the roasted tomatoes are even optional) and it’s put together in 15 min!

Whipped feta is one of those things, once done, you’re just wondering “where have you been all my life!”. So easy, delicious, versatile! Use is as a spread, a dip, a sauce… Serve with roasted veggies, on cooked potatoes, mixed with pasta, as a dip for chicken skewers… I’m even considering topping it with fresh sliced strawberries and a balsamic drizzle! Yum!

I call it a Mediterranean dip, because we used a combo of ingredients from Portugal (our new favorite olive oil), Italy (sundried tomatoes) and Greece (feta, Cyprus salt, Greek seasoning). Feels like vacation in a plate!

If you watch the recipe video, I have made half of the recipe listed below. Michele and I definitely managed to finish that plate just the 2 of us!

Grad some bread or crackers and dig in!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven at 450 F. Place cherry tomatoes on a baking tray. Drizzle a Tbsp of olive oil. Sprinkle some Greek seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 min or until lightly charred. Set aside and let cool.
  • In a food processor, place the feta, cream cheese and yogurt. Process until completely smooth. Stop and scrap the sides a couple of times during the process to make sure everything is getting blended. You can use immediately or refrigerate for later.

Plating

  • On a large plate, spread the whipped feta. Spoon the tapenade on top and spread over the whipped feta. Add the cooked and cooled down tomatoes. Top up with chopped sundried tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, pepper and Greek seasoning.
  • Serve with bread, pita bread or crackers. We love it with Gone Crackers! Since they are flat and sturdy, they make great edible scoops for the dip! Our favorite flavor for this dish is "olive oil and cracked pepper"

Notes

This is a very versatile recipe. You could used the whipped feta for many other things, like spread on toasts and drizzled with honey! Add it to cooked pasta or potatoes and a sprinkle of Greek seasoning! You can replaced the roasted tomatoes with other roasted veggies, such as zucchinis, eggplants, chickpeas… the possibilities are endless!
