Feta, Olive and Tomato Dip

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

Use a feta that is not too salty, there can be quite a difference in flavor when you buy feta cheese. You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for sun-dried if you like a more pungent flavor, but use less and taste it before you add more. Add several tablespoons of milk to turn the dip into a dressing. Also very good to spread on a sandwich and top it with tomato and cucumber slices.

Great recipe - I used it as a dip and it went over very well - served with corn tortilla chips.. I whipped the cottage cheese, feta and the herbs. Used a local Feta cheese "Gorts" excellent cheese. As suggested I added 1 sundried tomatoe, did not decrease fresh tomatoes (I used Roma tomatoes) and whipped the sundried separately and mixed in with the tomatoe etc. Thanks Petsrus for a great recipe

This is great dip! It was very easy to prepare and is very flavorful. I am not sure this is for all tastes, but I personally loved it! I plan to serve this next time inside a loaf of hollowed out bread with pita chips and garnished with flat leaf parsley leaves & perhaps even some cilantro. I used good quality feta marked "mild" and used fresh tomatoes, ordinary canned black olives. I took a small lemon half and lightly squeezed it over the finished dip. Where I currently live,I was unable to get cottage cheese, so I used German Quark (which is also a curd cheese)and thought it tasted great in this dip.
