Spicy Feta Dip-3 (1 of 1)

On my recent trip to Greece I could not get enough of the different feta appetizers that were offered at the restaurants. By far my favorite was a Spicy Feta and Red Pepper Dip! I searched far and wide, on the internet, to find a recipe that best replicated what I ate in Greece. This recipe was the closest one that I came across. Very few ingredients that are all put in the food processor and served! I decided to make homemade pita bread to serve with it. I wanted a little challenge!

Yield 2 cups
8oz feta cheese (774391, 8#, Aegean)
6oz canned roasted red peppers, drained and patted dry (990154, #10, Del Sol)
juice of half a lemon (00531, 12CT)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (CQP101, QT)
1/4 cup olive oil (992059, 4/3LTR, Colosseo)

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until mostly smooth. Pour dip into a dish and refrigerate for an hour before serving. Top with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of cayenne pepper and parsley (if desired) before serving.

Or serve warm by heating for 15 minutes in 350 degree oven. Omit the olive oil drizzle as the oil in the dip will come out when heated!
