Feta Cheese Dip - Middle Eastern Style

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

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.

Absolutely great recipe...My boyfriend is Egyptian and he really enjoyed this dip, so did I. I added ground red pepper and minced garlic since I love garlic.

Absolutley delicious!! We all really loved this. I did add about two tablespoons more lemon though. Served it with flatbread and it was gone in minutes!
