Good morning! I hope that you had a great weekend. Ours was beautiful, the weather was beautiful, no humidity, sunny with a slight breeze. The perfect weather for long walks and sitting on the porch in the afternoon sun.
I love finger foods, hors d’oeuvres, appetizers , tapas and foods like that and typically on Friday or Saturday those are the foods that we eat for dinner. A charcuterie board, dips, a cheese board and a salad are really the perfect meal, in my opinion. On Saturday I made an easy and delicious roasted artichoke and feta cheese dip to serve with cocktails. It is similar to everyones favorite spinach and artichoke dip but with the addition of feta cheese and no spinach. I think it is a great addition to your party table, picnic or just a night at home.
Warm Fire Roasted Artichoke and Feta Cheese Dip
1 14oz. jar of fire roasted artichoke hearts, chopped
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4-1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
squeeze of lemon
garnish: diced tomatoes, and kalamata olives
Preheat oven to 350 F. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl, except the garnish, mix well. Transfer the mixture to a baking pan that has been prepared with baking spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven, garnish with olives and tomato, let cool a bit and serve with crackers, bread or whatever else you like.
Note: I like to add extra artichokes to mine and sometimes a little extra feta. The recipe is simple and you can play with it to make it the way that you like.
I hope that you have a great day!
