Ingredients

12 oz feta cheese (you’ll need two 8oz blocks, use all of 1 block and 1/2 of the other)6 oz sour cream1 garlic clove, grated2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice1/2 teaspoon lemon zest1/8 teaspoon pepper Extra virgin olive oil

Directions

In a food processor, blend the feta and sour cream until very fine and smooth. Then add the lemon juice, lemon zest, grated garlic and pepper and blend until smooth. You can serve immediately, or chill in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. In the photo, I was able to get those pillowy dollops because I chilled in the fridge until I was ready to take the photo and then spooned it into the bowl in layers.

Serve on a plate and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and with crackers, bread sticks, bread, pita, or naan.
