Ingredients

  • 4 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-3 cloves garlic grated ** see NOTE below
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh dill finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • zest from half of one lemon
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Optional garnishes: chopped pistachios olives, tomatoes, dill

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer combine the softened cream cheese, yogurt, olive oil, dill, lemon juice and zest. Grate in the garlic and fold in the feta cheese. 
  • Season with fresh cracked black pepper to taste then transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with a light drizzle of olive oil and (optional) chopped pistachios, Kalamata olives or dill. 
  • Serve with warm toasted pita or vegetables.
  • ** NOTE: Garlic cloves vary in size. I used 2 cloves in this batch which was about 1 heaping tablespoon of grated garlic. This gave me the strong garlic flavor I was looking for but I would suggest you start small and build the garlic flavor so it’s not overwhelming.
