Creamy feta dip with fresh herbs and pepper is my go to appetizer that I make all summer long! It’s flavorsome, foolproof and has a perfect consistency (not pureed). Made with good quality feta, cream cheese, fresh chives, fresh rosemary, garlic and red pepper and seasoned with paprika, cayenne pepper, pepper and cumin.

Every time I make it, it’s always a HIT and everyone keeps asking for the recipe! Definitely a keeper! Tastes great served with raw vegetables (carrots, radishes, tomatoes, celery, yellow, green and red peppers and cucumber), homemade bread, grilled meat, roasted potatoes or you could just eat it just like that with a spoon.
