Some of my friends were asking how I made the feta cheese dip to go with our grilled wok chicken this week. It's super easy to make this Greek inspired dip (yes-I lived in Greece), and here is the recipe for the dip.
Feta Cheese Dip Recipe
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegarette (or red wine vinegar but may want to go with some added seasonings in that case)
- 2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce (or Zing sauce)
- a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper (maybe 3/4 teaspoon of each)
- other seasonings are fine and fun to play with (barbecue rub, garlic, hot sauce)
Just put everything in a bowl and mix. On the feta cheese, my friend Angelia gave me a beautiful block of feta (THANKS!) which I shreaded with a hand grater pretty fine. Crumbled would work as well. If you don't want any chunks or pieces, then use a food processor or blender.
I spooned the mixture into another bowl for serving so that there would not be white goo up the sides of the bowl. Not a biggie. It just looks nicer.
This amount is good for 4 to 6 people. You can cut it in half for a couple or double, triple etc for larger groups.
I absolutely loved this dip, and I'm not a huge dip person. It was a hit with everyone, so even the feta haters (gasp) could handle this balance to get that kick without it being overpowering.
Our feta cheese dip was perfect with both the chicken with had a little zip from the seasonings used when I woked it on the grill as well as with the celery. So, you could serve this delicious dip with fried hot or buffalo wings, grilled chicken wings, or just with fresh cut vegetables. It could also be used a nice condiment for something like a chicken or lamb sandwich. Yum. I need to put that on my to-do list.
