This recipe is delicious. I use reduced fat cream cheese instead of fat-free (I've never found fat-free cheese appealing) and I add a little splash of milk to my food processor because the ingredients are too thick and because I prefer to use the recipe as a creamier dip rather than a spread. I served the feta dip with the Pita Bread Bites from this site. It's one of my favorite appetizers. Yum. Read More

My rating for this as written is just 3 stars. The feta made the spread way too salty so I doubled the cream cheese. That made it better but it still needed more "zing " so I added some sun-dried tomatoes which did the trick! My co-workers cleaned the dish right out in record time! After my tweaks a strong 4.5 stars! Read More

Wonderful! Although I would eliminate the salt and pepper at the end I felt it tasted better without. Still a very handy recipe thanks! Read More

I love cheese so it comes to no surprise that this is a favourite! I would cut back on the salt and pepper at the end though might have been that my feta was salthy enough. Thanks for this quick appetizer! Read More

This is fantastic! I just whipped up a double recipe only I used plain feta (because that is what I had on hand) then I added some dried basil and garlic powder. I followed the advise of other reviewers and did not add salt. I can not wait to bring this to the bible study picnic tonight! Read More
