Oh WOW! I had so many compliments on this dip! Rich and delicious, certainly not something you would eat every day, but for a special occasion, it is perfect (I served it with veggies and crackers at my son's wedding.) I wanted the tomato and pesto flavour throughout, so I chopped the tomatoes finely and put most of them and most of the pesto in with the cream cheese mixture. I didn't mold it because I didn't get a chance to try it ahead and I didn't want to risk it collapsing. I used the remainder of the tomatoes and pesto to garnish the top. I actually forgot to use the pine nuts, but I really don't see how they could improve it. However, next time I will include them and see. This recipe is a definite keeper!
This is a fabulous spread I found on another website. It is very unusual, colorful and tastes amazing! I halved the recipe and it was plenty. It is wonderful for a wine-tasting party. I served it with toasted baguette slices. I drained the sundried tomatoes and pesto because the oil tends to "pool" on the serving plate.
I found this recipe looking for something to bring to a tapas party and decided to try this one. It was easy, looked great and people really loved it. I made it with unsalted butter and was glad because feta is a pretty salty cheese but realized after getting it all layered together that I had forgotten the vermouth! Oh well, it tasted 5 stars without and next time I make it will be sure to add it. My 11 year old son helped in the making process and he thought it was fun to do.
I had this tonight at a bridal shower and had to come home and find the recipe. This dip is insanely good. I am craving more already. I will definitely be bringing this to lots of parties. So glad to have found this recipe. Thank you
This was a big hit! I didn't change a thing. We thought it would be great around Christmas because of the colors.
Excellent recipe. I served as an appetizer for a Spanish ethnic dinner & there were several good responses. I don't care for pine nuts so I substituted chopped water chestnuts. Very tasty & a great combination of ingredients. Thanks for sharing.
This was so good. All my guests asked for the recipe. It was smooth and delicious. It's a keeper.
This recipe is an incredibly easy and delicious one for dinner party. I needed a cold tappa for a dinner club and wow...this is a keeper. My nine year old was able under supervision to make this in about 30 minutes. The flavors are so well blended together and the presentation is gorgeous.
Wow! Everyone raved about this spread. I love it and will be making it alot. It does take some time but is really worth it.
