Awesome little recipe! I love it when so few ingredients produce such wonderful results. I cut the recipe in half because I knew this was going to be a lot of cheese spread. I used light cream cheese, 5 oz. of light feta cheese, minced garlic from a jar, and 2 & 1/2 tsp. of dried dill. This is one of those recipes that you have to play with to suit your tastes so go crazy. This was especially good on bagel chips! Read More

I make this recipe however I use garlic powder and dry dill plus I add enough sour cream to make it not so stiff. Then I spread it on french bread or farmers bread. Read More

This was a great recipe that several people asked for and was soooo simple to make. I used dried dill which seemed to work quite well and added a bit more of both the dill and the garlic than the recipe called for. Taste as you make - you may like more or less! Read More

Very strong feta taste but very good if 'strong' is what you want. I served this in a hollowed out round squash and it was quite a wow-getter. =) Don't we all want that? I used 2 tsp dried dill and it worked great. Read More

Really tasty and couldn't be easier! This is a great one to make ahead of time and pull out when needed. I agree that it's easy to adjust the amount of seasonings to fit your taste-you can even adjust the amount of feta. Thanks Bronte! 2005-This recipe was featured in the USA Today weekend section. The REAL submitter is my sweet s-i-l Susan Getter-You're famous now! Read More

This was good with some changes. First of all the feta makes the spread very salty and as it was also extremely thick I added sour cream into the mix to reduce the saltiness and give it more of the consistency I was looking for. Will make this again with changes. Great taste. Read More

I liked this recipe because it was easy and versatile. I cut it in half because it seemed like it made alot. I know that dill has so much flavor so I added a little bit at a time. Next time I make this I think I will put the feta cheese through the food processor to break up any chunks. I think I would like it a little smoother. Next time I would also add a tsp. of cracked black pepper. Read More

This was sooooo yummy! Very garlicky huge feta taste...it was great on seasoned toast rounds. I can't see thinning it with milk though like some suggested. I think it would really take away that kick and mellow it out too much. The only think I did differently was to mix all the ingredients with the mixer except the feta and then mix it in at the end. I liked the idea of chunks to give it a bit of texture. Great recipe! Read More
