    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Place the feta, yogurt, and 1/4 teaspoons salt in a bowl and mash with a fork to make a smooth paste. Alternatively this can be pureed in a food processor. Add the garlic, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, paprika, and cayenne. Season with salt and black pepper and mix well.
    3. 3
      Wrap the pita tightly in foil and place in the oven until warm, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Spread the feta puree on a serving plate. Drizzle with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, paprika, and garnish with olives. Serve with the warm pita.

      This is a yummy mix of feta, yoghurt and spices; it goes down very easily and has a bit of a kick. If you buy the stuff in brine and not dry packed, make sure you let the feta 'drip off' or you may risk that the spread gets a bit too salty. I will be making again for sure.
