Zesty Whipped Feta Dip
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Roasted garlic and fresh lemon add nutty depth and bright flavor to this addictive Zesty Whipped Feta Dip. Look for roasted garlic where you buy olives and antipasti, or trim the top of two heads of fresh garlic, drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until cloves are soft. Let cool and peel. Pick the kind of feta you like to eat best, keeping in mind that sheep’s milk feta has the strongest flavor. This recipe makes one and a half cups of dip.
