So this was pretty much delicious. And ridiculously easy. I made this as a dip for apps before dinner with my Mom, and we all gave it two thumbs up. Found this on a Buzzfeed listing of best dips, of all places, and it came from a blog called Domestic Superhero. This would be great to bring to a picnic, and it’s best if you can let it chill overnight, but a couple of hours would do. Serve it at room temperature.
- 8 oz of feta crumbles or block of feta
- 8oz of cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup tightly packed basil leaves, rinsed and dried (I used a little bit less because our basil is a bit bitter)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 Tbsp white wine
- salt and pepper to taste
If using a block of feta, first place it in the food processor and pulse to crumble. Next add the cream cheese, basil, and garlic and process on high for 1 minute or until creamy and smooth.
Add wine, salt and pepper and combine for a few more seconds until nice and smooth.
Remove from processor bowl and place in an air-tight container in the fridge. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, but the longer the better (overnight if possible before a party).
Serve with toasted baguette slices, vegetable slices, pita chips, anything you like. It is a thick dip though, so something sturdy would be best.
