Ingredients for the Whipped Feta, Honey and Pistachio Dip
Feta Cheese: Use good quality feta cheese for this recipe. If you can find it, we recommend using sheep’s milk feta as it has a richer flavour.
Cream Cheese: This adds creaminess and body to the dip. You could also use mascarpone cheese if you want an even richer dip. Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature to ensure it's easy to blend and creates a smooth dip.
Lemon: The lemon zest lightens the taste of the cheese.
Garlic: For garlic lovers, you can use more than 1/2 a teaspoon or less depending on your taste. If you’re not a fan of garlic, you could leave it out altogether.
Olive Oil: This is used to thin out the dip and make it easier to spread. You could also use melted butter if you prefer.
Honey: Use good quality honey for this recipe as it really adds depth of flavour. If you’re not a fan of honey, you could also use agave nectar or maple syrup.
