Who doesn't love cheese??
So, you may clearly see from almost every post I've made, The Miller's LOOOOOOVE cheese.Baked cheese, cheese cake, chicken stuffed with cheese. This entry will be no different.
This recipe was born after a trip to Salaam Restaurant here in Athens. It is a glorious, locally owned restaurant that features the most delicious world cuisine, right here in our small town. We love them. One summer afternoon, they had a feta dip served with warm pita. It was amazing, and Brian decided to recreate (with the Miller twists, of course). Happy Feta-ing. Oh hell, happy any cheese-ing!
1 - 8 oz. package high quality, brick Feta cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
1-2 cloves raw garlic, minced
Approx. 1/4 cup olive oil (see note in steps)
Warm pita or bread of your desire
Sliced veggies; carrots, celery, etc... for dipping
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a food processor and mix on low. While mixing, slowly being drizzling in the olive oil. Use approximately 1/4 cup - but you may use less. Blend the spread until creamy.
Spread on veggies, bread, or crackers of your choice for a delicious starter. Enjoy!
