Light, healthy and delectable; Feta Dip, with its Greek ingredients, is a simple answer to woo your guests.
Europeans absolutely love to entertain their guests with delicious little bowls of finger food. Parties are often stressful to organise and let’s be honest it’s not always easy to please guests. In other words, it’s often a headache to decide what to serve to your invitees. Therefore, I brought for you a simple and delicious solution for your parties. Success guaranteed at all times; the famous Feta Dip!
With Greek ingredients, this dip sauce is light and super healthy. It melts so quickly in your mouth that you will not even have the opportunity to have a second dip because your guests will simply gobble it all up within seconds. Try using fresh pitta bread as accompaniment or substitute it with fresh, warm and crispy naan bread. You can prepare this in advance and leave it to rest in the fridge for hours. Remove it from the fridge when you start warming up the bread and serve it all together. The flavours will be an invitation to travel to the Mediterranean Sea.
This dip sauce is a winner, it’s been tested more than ones and I guarantee that every time the bowl will return empty. After all, this is the best compliment a cook can get.
Let us know what you thought about it!
• 250 grams of quality Feta cheese (choose the imported one)
• 1 big clove of garlic (2 if you really like the taste of garlic)
• 1 big bunch of coriander or Parsley
• A handful of chopped chives

• Virgin olive oil
• 1 spring onion (* optional)
• Ground Black pepper
• One pack of pitta bread
• A pinch of dried oregano
1. Crumble your feta cheese roughly in a bowl and set aside. Chop your coriander and chives roughly. Chop your spring onion (if you choose to use that ingredient).
2. Put all the above ingredients in your mixer/ blender. Add the Greek yoghurt, grate your garlic and add it all to the mixture. Pulse/blitz it all in your mixer/blender.
3. Pour it in a serving bowl, add the ground pepper (not too much) and mix with a spoon. Finally add some virgin olive oil (1 tbsp maximum) and mix well. Decorate with a pinch of dried oregano. (Set aside in the fridge with cling film until five minutes before the party)
4. Cut your pitta bread in halves and warm them up in the toaster (you can use a crispy naan bread also if you like). Serve with your dip sauce and let your guests gobble it all up.
