Whipped Garlic Feta Dip

Whipped Garlic Feta Dip

Anytime I can whip up a quick appetizer and have it taste REALLY good, I am one excited blogger. Quick and yummy are two words that get me all sorts of excited. Especially when time is short and I have hungry people to feed. Well, things are slowing down a bit in this household. Our son is all married off so I do not have the busyness of that, but truth be told, I am still in a lot wee bit of mourning over it. We had a glorious 14 months to prepare and in the blink of an eye, it’s over and in the midst of all of this we have gained the most amazing, wonderful and beautiful daughter-in-law. So now back to the real world and taking time to devote to my beloved blog. In my few moments of boredom I perused recipes that I can make and enjoy with little effort (we all need that sometimes and it’s ok because I say so) and came across a slightly different version of this recipe. After some tweaking I found a happy balance of what I call Whipped Garlic Feta Dip. As always, you can adjust ingredients to your liking. I love eating this with sea salt pita chips (Town House makes a yummy chip) because the dip itself is a little salty and sea salt tends to be less salty in my opinion. Pretzel chips are good also, as well as most veggies. If you are not a fan of feta you probably will not enjoy this dip so much but if you are…well then, let me just say that you will love this! Happy dipping friends!

Sláinte!
