Feta & Lemon Dip

A refreshing and light dip – I don’t think I have made a dip before that is this quite easy to make.  It only takes feta cheese, lemon juice, some pepper, chilli, parsley and olive oil, blended together.  

I would serve this either with vegetable sticks or crispy crackers, and even with grilled fish or chicken, as part of a main course.

For the dip, I used the following ingredients:

  • 50 grammes feta cheese, plain (not marinated or with spices)
  • 1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • some pepper
  • a little fresh chilli (I picked one of my small Etna chilli’s from my herb garden) 
  • fresh parsley (also from my herb garden)

Method:

Add the feta, half the lemon juice, half the olive oil, pepper, chilli and parsley to a jar, and use a stick blender to blend until smooth.  Taste and add more olive oil and lemon juice if preferred.  
Scoop out in a pretty plate and as a possible decoration, you can add some lemon zest or fresh chopped parsley on top.

Serve with veggie sticks, endive leaves or crackers, and enjoy!
