Trying to recreate a feta dip we like from a local Greek restaurant, I ran across a recipe similar to this on the internet and adjusted it to come up with this. Eat with tortilla chips or pita bread or cut up veggies.

I brought this to a party and people were raving about it! It is soooo good. I used roasted red peppers from a jar to save time and served it with pieces of pita bread and sliced cucumbers. I will definitely be making this again soon!!! Read More

I had all the ingredients on hand since we just had gyros for dinner the other night. Wish I would have had this with the dinner! I did cheat and used the jarred roasted peppers. I also added a little lemon juice for zing. This was fantastic. Thanks. Read More

This is a great recipe. When I tried it out on my friends they loved it. It is ridiculously easy and highly customizable. Last time I made it I used the normal nonfat Publix yogurt but think I may try the thicker Greek style next time for a little more body. I also would experiment with upping it to one and a half or even two peppers since the feta is a strong taste that though delicious seems to steal the show from the peppers. Highly recommended.

This was fantastic - totally addictive I couldn't stop eating it! I used a little ground chipotle instead of cayenne - with the fresh garlic it was an excellent kick! Make it skinnier with reduced fat feta and fat free yogurt. Read More

Great recipe but I make mine a little different. I use two red peppers which I sautee myself and I include the garlic and add some basil as well here with the olive oil. Once it cools I add the entire mixture to the food processor along with 1/3 cup of plain yogurt (to taste can be omitted completely) and 1 1/2 tea of hot sauce (also to taste and can be omitted.

I had this dip at a greek bistro in SLC we thought it was delish and this recipe is exactly what we had! Amazingly good gets spunkier as it marinates for a few days. If you love feta this dip is for you. Yum!!! Read More

I used jarred roasted red peppers and found that there was not much flavor to this dip. If I made it again I would try fresh roasted red peppers and definitely let it marinade for a day. Read More
