FANTASTIC!! You have to be fond of feta cheese and greek flavorings, however. I used kalamata olives instead. I made this then spread it on whole wheat tortillas, laid roasted red peppers in a strip down the middle and rolled them up. Then I cut them (carefully) into pinwheels. Everyone RAVED about them! The spread is awesome. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I love all of the ingredients in this dish but not this recipe unfortunately. Much too salty and not enough ingredients. The feta should not be the main ingredient b/c it makes it too salty. Maybe making a base of sour cream would tone down the saltiness. Read More

The whole party loved it! Will make again and everyone asked for the recipe. Could be my food processor but pulse didn't work for me. The mixture was too thick. Read More

i highly recommend blending the sun-dried tomatoes in at the end with the black olives to avoid the appearance of canned cat food! everyone that tried it absolutely loved it. Read More

We serve this every year on New Years Eve. What a great party dip! Remember to let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours and the intense saltiness of the feta will fade and the flavors will meld. Read More

WOW!! I don't give many recipes 5 stars but this was excellent! I put the olives in the processor (I used kalamata). I then garnished with some sun dried tomatoes olives and basil. I think you could add some fresh basil for a more complex flavor. I will make this again it was yummy. Read More

I am Greek and this spread is a party in my mouth! I made it for a friend and we ate the entire thing in one sitting. The strong flavors make this especially different and a cut above the rest. Read More

This recipe was delicious and so easy to make! The only thing I changed was that I used kalamata olives instead of plain black olives - and it was so wonderful! I served it with sliced baguette. I couldn't believe how much flavor was packed into each mouthful! It was a hit at the party I brought it to. I will definitely make this one again. It's a nice orangish-red color so I served it in a a green shallow dish with a sprig of fresh thyme on top. Beautiful and delicious! Read More
