Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

This is such a wonderful topping for crackers. The only thing I found disappointing was the fact that someone had gotten into my feta so I had to cut the recipe back. All of my seasonings are in storage, so I had to use what my MIL has on hand. I found a dill blend that has minced onion and other seasonings. It went really well with the feta. I cut out the salt because feta is salty enough. Adding feta to the shopping list so I can make it again soon. Recipe was made and reviewed for an AUS Reunion Holiday Tag Game.
