There’s no need to buy a premade dip when in 5 minutes you can create an unbelievably tasty Herbed Feta Dip! All you need is some very good quality danish feta, various fresh herbs a lemon and olive oil.
This recipe was one of the less labour intensive dishes of the recent Chew Town picnic, in fact this dip was an absolute blessing in disguise. At the moment when I was feeling a little under the pump and like I really had bitten off a bit more than I could chew, I decided to take a break from all of the other dishes and create something quick, easy and simple to get my confidence back on track and power through.
The trick to this dip is spending a little extra money on the best quality feta you can find and making sure you have fragrant and fresh herbs.
