Roasted Red Pepper Feta Dip

May 4, 2012

This is the second dip that I brought along to my friends’ afternoon shindig. It’s full of roasted red peppers (which give it a fun color) and yummy feta (which make it taste awesome). My friends approved:

Again, it’s best to prep this one the night before so plan ahead! Also, this recipe is an adaptation from Cooks Illustrated.

You will need:

  • 1 lb (~4 c) feta cheese, rinsed and crumbled
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ t cayenne
  • ¼ t freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 jar (6-oz) roasted red peppers, rinsed and patted dry

Then you will…

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, about 20 seconds.
  2. Refrigerate for at least two hours, until firm.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper.
