Red pepper and feta dip with fresh herbs 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. So good, every time I make it, it’s always a HIT and everyone keeps asking for the recipe! 

Red pepper and fet dip tastes great served with raw vegetables, homemade bread, grilled meat, roasted potatoes or you could just eat it just like that with a spoon.
