A whipped feta dip with spicy honey. Whether you’re looking for something special to serve with a drink or a starter, everyone will love this one. It’s fast, and super simple.
The salty feta is whipped into a creamy, fluffy dip. The honey is swirled with chili flakes and garlic. Serve a big bowlful next to crispy pita bread, crackers or a platter of raw veggies for a funky appetizer.
Dips shouldn’t be complicated and this one surely isn’t. It’s nothing but feta, ricotta and sour cream blended together in a food processor, but what comes out of this combination is something truly special.
Surprising and interesting enough to keep you coming back for another dip. The creamiest, dreamiest dip you’ve ever imagined. It’s drizzled with spicy honey and sprinkled with za’atar.
Any leftovers can be used as a sandwich spread or as a salad dressing.
