Feta, Olive and Tomato Dip

Feta, Olive and Tomato Dip created by flower7

Use a feta that is not too salty, there can be quite a difference in flavor when you buy feta cheese. You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for sun-dried if you like a more pungent flavor, but use less and taste it before you add more. Add several tablespoons of milk to turn the dip into a dressing. Also very good to spread on a sandwich and top it with tomato and cucumber slices.

    Very tasty recipe. You could even call it Greek Salad dip cause, except for the cottage cheese, it has all the same ingredients I put in my 'favorite' Greek Salad. Perfect proportions of ingredients, only I made the mistake of adding an extra garlic (as I always do) & I found it abit too much so next time I'll stick to the recipe. I used 2 vs 3 Tbsp olive oil & didn't bother 'skinning' my tomatoes. I added 1/4 c cream cheese & sprinkled top with chopped red peppers. Took this to a party & it was very well received, thanks for sharing.

    This is a great dip! The only thing for me was that I found my feta a bit grainy...so that is a matter of trying other forms of it. Thanks for sharing.

    My food processor broke a few months ago and I have yet to replace it, so I just mixed the cheeses & spices with a fork, mashing them as much as possible. I was an ounce shy on feta (and was using a fairly strong goat's milk feta) so used an extra ounce of cottage cheese. I had some cherry tomatoes to use so in place of the two tomatoes I used 6 of those (seeded but not skinned). Otherwise followed the recipe, using parsley, black olives, sweet paprika, and about 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice. This is very good with crackers and I also think it would be great as a filling in baked turnovers (which I'm going to try with refrigerated biscuits as the dough). Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe! Update: Just wanted to add that I took this along to my parent's for Mothers Day and my family nearly devoured it before dinner was ready! They all loved it. Thanks again! :)
