So, I used to post once a month on a blog called Today’s Housewife. Last fall, the group decided together to stop posting due the busyness of life and families and such. Though sad, I enjoyed being part of the group. As of early January, the blog was officially taken down. But I don’t want to lose my recipes, so periodically I will be reposting them on here. Enjoy!
from July 12, 2012… We haven’t gotten to 100 degrees yet this summer, but it’s been pretty darn close. This would be excellent right now!
Over the past few weeks of 100 degree days, pretty much the thing I’ve wanted to do the least is turn on the oven. I mean, it doesn’t need to be hotter inside than it already is outside, does it? But the thing is… food preparation still needs to be done. Dinner, get togethers, general happiness, the like. And sometimes, you just need gooey cheese. Or is that just me?
Well, if you are in any way like me, or if you just happen to like good food, then this dip is just the thing! Mediterranean Feta Dip combines a bunch of delicious Greek flavors like roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, and feta cheese in a cool, light dip that is perfect for the hot days of summer.
I made this dip for a church event recently and it was a huge hit. The flavors are simple yet classy, and it was a snap to throw together. Just be sure to allow time for chilling, as that really helps the flavors meld together. I know this will be an appetizer I make time and time again. Hope you enjoy!
