Recipe

For the dip:

  • 7 ounces feta in brine, drained
  • 1/ 2 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon lemon zest

For the garnish:

  • drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
  • handful chopped pistachios
  • pinch of red chilli flakes

Garlic chips:

  • 6 thinly sliced peeled garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • Step 1

    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).

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    Transfer the dip to the small bowl you'll serve it in. Make your garlic chips if using- Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat until hot. Add peeled and sliced garlic cloves and fry on each side for 1-2 minutes until golden brown, then immediately drain the oil and place garlic on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Let garlic chips cool.

  • Step 4

    Just before serving, top the dip with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of red chili flakes, garlic chips, and chopped pistachios.
