Feta and Dill Slather

If there was one food I could not give up it would likely be cheese. Cheese, crackers and apple or grapes are my staple snack. I also frequently serve cheese as an appetizer, typically brie or goat cheese with fruit and bread or crackers. I wanted to try a different cheese appetizer my norm.

The LCBO’s Food & Drink magazine featured a wonderful feta cheese slather. The aroma and tang of fresh dill and lemon zest went perfectly with the saltiness of the feta. I also cut up small cherry tomatoes and layered them on top of the cheese slather, which improved the taste. I have been eating it regularly on crackers, on sandwiches and even on my burger. Very yummy!

250g feta cheese, crumbled
2 garlic clove, whole
1 T olive oil (original recipe called for 3T)
The zest of one lemon
1 T lemon juice
Freshly ground pepper
3 T fresh chopped dill
2 T fresh chopped chives

Place the feta, oil, garlic, zest and pepper in a food processor. Process until smooth. Stir in dill and chives. Serve with crackers, baguette, top with tomato slices if desired. Also a great spread for sandwiches, turkey burgers or wraps.

That dill slather sounds good! I would not want to have to give up cheeses either.

I love the Food and Wine Mag and this is exactly one of the reasons why

Yum, sounds awesome. I've been meaning to buy some feta to make bruschetta with, so this sounds like an easy and tasty way to use up any leftovers.
