Feta Dip

I thought I’d share this awesome super easy no-cook appetizer that has always been a hit.  This is that ONE recipe that I always get asked for the most.  And it’s ridiculously, embarrassingly easy. 

Here’s what you need:
olive oil
1 block (1#) of feta cheese  (I don’t like the pre-crumbled kind because I think it is dry)
tomatoes (any kind)…I use about 3 Roma’s
1 bunch of green onions
1 baguette
Greek Seasoning (see pic below)
1 large platter
0371. Wet the platter generously with olive oil.039 2. Dice the green onions and tomatoes.042 3. Throw them on the olive oil.043 4. Crumble the feta cheese and throw that on the platter.  045 4. Sprinkle the Greek Seasoning on top.  (I use about 3 tsp.)  I have seen this brand everywhere…it shouldn’t be hard to find.  (If you can't find it, you can sub with oregano and a little pepper and some salt to taste.)046 0534. Mix it gently all together…048  5.  Until it looks like this.  (Festive, huh?)055 5.  Slice the baguette.  A special word about the bread…it MAKES the dip.  I have found that the best bread is FRESH, bakery kind….the kind that comes in the long skinny paper bag.   You want it bite-sized and you want to cut it thin…057 6.  …because this is how people will “dip”.  Or you can include a spoon if the people you hang around with are super polite and dainty.  I have never found that to be necessary.058

  2. This was so good! I made this on Monday night with chicken on the grill. I got a loaf of fresh bread for mopping and the little leftovers I had, I ate standing up at the counter the next day for lunch!
    Thanks for the great recipes!
