Friends beg me to make this when they come over. Cream cheese, garlic, anchovies, feta cheese and fresh chives are quickly blended and ready to serve in this easy gourmet snack. Even serious dieters can't resist this heavenly spread! Serve with crackers, toasted pita wedges, or sliced baguette.

These are all flavors I like and this did not disappoint me. I did make a few changes tho. I used cream cheese with chives and onions (in the tub) and omitted the fresh chives. I also used anchovy paste instead of the fillets (just squirted some in until it looked like enough). The dip had great flavor and is definitely one I will continue to make.

Sorry but I don't quite get the rave reviews. I wanted to enjoy this because I love feta and I love anchovies. But this just didn't do it for me.

Great recipe! It completely disappeared and everyone asked for the recipe. Note I used the cream cheese with chives and the anchovy paste as someone suggested; however I think half-a-tube of the paste was a bit too much. Next time I'll try maybe 1/4 of a tube.

This is so good! I followed suggestion of previous user and used the cream cheese chive and onion spread and anchovy paste used 1/2 the tube. Then spread it on fresh foccacia. It was a hit! Might be good using blue cheese as well Thanks for sharing

This dip is delicious! I found it to have a lot of flavor -- lots of garlic and lots of feta (the anchovy adds richness but doesn't at all add a "fishy" flavor if you're hesitant abou that). I made it a couple of hours before a party and found it to be very firm when I uncovered it at the party (I should have known better -- the cream cheese and feta naturally get firm in the fridge). Next time I'll make sure to take it out of the fridge at least 30 min prior to serving to allow the flavors to develop fully and make spreading easier.

I was looking for something different to take to a party and this was it. Everyone loved it! I also doubled the anchovies.
