I recommend using a soft feta, such as Balkan or Macedonian; definitely not Canadian. I most like the flavours of the Balkan yoghurts. If it's too dry, you may want to add a teaspoon or two of olive oil. It really depends on the feta you use.
That's right, Earl the cat vouches for this. No, he hasn't tasted it, he just said, "Yeah, sure, go ahead and post it" when I ran it by him. Well, that's not entirely true, he actually just looked at me and nodded. Ok, he slept right through my question, big deal! Feta, sour cream, cumin, scallions...
Recipe found in Toronto Star.
Gokhan Gokyilmaz and Su Goral made this three-ingredient dip during an olive oil tasting and lunch at their Toronto home. They served it with fresh bread, arbequina olives, an avocado and tomato salad, and a spicy walnut and feta dip called muhammara.
Their Turkish olive oil, Zei, is being sold in Toronto fine food stores. Buy good-quality feta from a cheesemonger and rinse it before crumbling.

From Saad Fayed, Feta cheese is most often associated with Greek cooking. However, it is the most popular of cheeses eaten in the Middle East! Feta absorbs the flavors of herbs and spices very well, and has an ideal consistency for many dishes. This dip is served with pita bread wedges or crackers.
Tessa Kiros is a delightful cook with a Finnish mother and a Greek-Cypriot father. She grew up in South Africa, inheriting Scandinavian dishes from her mother, Greek food from her father's side, cooked in London, and now lives in Tuscany! This delicious mustard recipe is from her colourful cookbook, "Falling Cloudberries". This will keep for a few weeks in a jar in the fridge, and goes with almost everything: meat sandwiches, roast ham, smoked sausages, gravadlax ...
This Italy-inspired hummus is a recipe I created in celebration of my bountiful basil harvest. Did you know that basil has natural antidepressant properties? For me, that's just one more reason to put it in everything!
A friend made this at a get-together and it quickly disappeared and was on high demand, so she gave me this recipe. Great if you like garlic! (NOTE: This IS a garlic recipe and has a strong garlic taste!)
There are literally thousands of chutney recipes for the home cook. Chutney is a wonderful condiment to have at hand, as it livens up red meat dishes, pork and grilled meats, and can be used in barbecue sauces, in sandwich fillings and in ground meats for extra flavour. Here is a simple recipe. Sterilise bottles by washing, then putting on an oven tin in a cold oven. Heat the oven to 325 deg F/160 deg C, and leave the bottles and lids at that temperature for 10 - 15 minutes. And there you have sterile bottles without hassles.
