Feta Spread

This is adapted from "Emeril at the Grill", a cookbook I enjoy very much. I used this spread on lamb burgers, but it would also be great as a vegetable dip (thinned a bit) or a sandwich spread. The original recipe calls for mint, which I don't care for, so I replaced it with basil. Cooking time does not include time to chill.

Very good. Loved the saltiness of the feta with the citrus and the bit of a bite from the cayenne. I used basil, as written, but when my mint is growing next summer, I will try that, as we like the flavor in dishes like this. Great as part of an appetizer dinner tonight. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.

This was a nice spread that I used as a dip for some crackers and baby carrots. I did quarter the recipe easily. Thanks! Made for PRMR game.
