The Husband and I bought a “Zesty Feta Dip” at a high end grocery store while we were on a long weekend trip to his parents’ cabin. It was expensive, but I can never resist trying a new cheese dip. Especially one that claimed to be zesty. The dip was good, but after one bite we both agreed it would be better homemade with a few tweaks. Zesty dip NEEDS red pepper flakes. It just does.
When we got home we made out version of this dip for some friends, who claimed it was “super yum”. It is super yum! It’s a great appetizer served with pita chips, The Husband loves it as a spread on a tomato and chicken sandwich, and I can’t wait to try it as a dip for sliced red bell pepper! Super yum!
