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. Posted for ZWT6

This is a very quick and easy to make dip recipe which yields very tasty results. Great for veggie dipping and also fancy enough for a party.
I luved the combination of the salty feta with the earthy oregano!
I think next time I will use less oil, though I know it is traditional the way you have posted it. I just found the taste a bit overpowering and would have liked the feta and herbs to come through more. A personal preference, thats all.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing yet another great recipe with us, Dreamer!
