Salty feta cheese and peperoncini give this Feta Pepper Dip a pop. It will wow your friends and family on game day or any day you choose to serve it.
Wow, I was exhausted yesterday. Somehow the kid's first day at school wore me out. I'm not sure how that happened since all I did was sit around and wait for them to come home while I talked a bunch of jibber-jabber on Facebook.
By mid-afternoon I was tired. Doing nothing can suck the life out of you. I decided I only had enough energy to make dip for dinner. So I whipped up this Feta Pepper Dip.
However, as the dinner hour quickly approached, the responsibility of being a mother and a wife extinguished my extreme lack of motivation. I am happy to report the best grilled chicken and gorgonzola salad made it to the table along with this awesome dip.
Here's what I love about it...the salty feta, with the slight heat of the peperoncini and the tang of the lemon zest make a tasty little treat. The end all is to scoop it up with barbecue chips. The barbecue chips are really a must here, the sweetness of them adding another layer of flavor.
But I'm also thinking this would be some kind of heaven slathered on a grilled lamb burger. That just might be lunch for us today.
Oh yeah, this dip comes together in a snap so no reason to not make it right up.
Blend feta cheese, mayonnaise, and cream cheese in a food processor until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl periodically.
Fold in sliced peperoncini's, green onions, lemon zest and black pepper. Transfer to a serving dish and chill dip for at least one hour before serving.
Drizzle dip with extra-virgin olive oil.
Make sure to serve with a sturdy, barbecue chip and our crisp and delicious Noble Pig Pinot Gris for the perfect wine pairing.
