Ingredients

  • 200 g feta cheese, drained 8 oz
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • pinch black pepper
  • salt to taste if necessary

For the garlic chips:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

For garnish:

  • drizzle olive oil
  • pinch red chili flakes
  • 1-2 tsp garlic chips
  • 2 tsp chopped pistachios
  • pinch fresh herbs, like thyme if desired

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a blender or food processor, add the feta cheese and sour cream/yogurt. Blend on medium speed continuously until mixture is creamy and lump free (about 1 minute).
  • Drizzle in olive oil while blender is still running, until combined. Add the lemon zest and black pepper and pulse to mix. Taste, and if you need it, add salt.
  • Transfer the dip to the small bowl you'll serve it in. Make your garlic chips if using (see notes below)

For the garlic chips (optional) and garnish:

  • Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sliced garlic and fry on each side for 1-2 minutets until golden brown, then immediately drain the oil and place garlic on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Let garlic chips cool.
  • Just before serving, top the dip with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of red chili flakes, garlic chips, and chopped pistachios.

Notes

If not using garlic chips, add 1 crushed garlic clove to the dip while blending. 
 
If not serving dip straight away, it'll keep up to 3 days sealed in the fridge. Garnish just before serving.
