Feta Pepper Dip and a Happy Thanksgiving

Written by , Posted in Recipes

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year.  A 4-day weekend, friends, family, football, stuffing your face with a smorgasbord of delicious food…it doesn’t get much better.  This year we headed over to my mom’s in the suburbs for the feast…20 lbs of juicy turkey, stuffing, Greek stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, cranberry jello, buttery rolls, and pumpkin pie.  As if the main meal isn’t enough, we also had some delicious appetizers.  This year the big hit was the new Feta Cheese and Pepper dip recipe that my mom made and now I’ll share it with you!

Feta Cheese and Pepperoncini Dip

8 oz. crumbled feta cheese

8 oz. cream cheese

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 cup chopped pepperoncini peppers

1/4 cup scallions

1/2 tsp lemon zest

1.  Blend feta and cream cheese

2.  Stir in mayo and fold in remaining ingredients

3.  Top with more scallions for garnish

4.  Serve with pita chips or crackers
