Rosemary Feta Spread Recipe

by katerina on February 18, 2007

I whipped this up a few months ago for a dinner party out of what I had in the fridge and it was a huge success.
This makes a small recipe so feel free to double it. Keep in mind that it is extremely rich and salty, since it is mostly made of feta, so a little goes a long way. Another option would be to add more lemon juice and olive oil and turn it into a dip! This can be made ahead and will only get better with a day or two in the fridge. Serve as an appetizer with fresh bread and Kalamata olives or even as part of a cheese plate.
