This is a soft, creamy dip that goes well with veggies, tortilla chips, or bagel chips. Do not use whipped cream cheese. Prep time is chill time. **Update: After reading Parsley's review, I changed the ingredients to read 1/4 cup red onion, since onions can vary in strength so much. Better to start with a smaller quantity and add more if you'd like.
From January 2006 Southern Living. We had this for dinner last night. At first taste, I thought it was just okay; by the time I got it to the table, though, it tasted really good. I had the leftovers cold for lunch today, and it was just as good as last night. I used about 2 oz of feta, and I used a deli-roasted chicken.
Fast, simple, and delicious--great for a busy weeknight! Just add a salad and bread. During the summer I puree fresh basil and freeze it in ice trays, and that's what I use in this sauce. However, you could use 1 teaspoon of dried basil if you have to.
