Greek Feta Spread-Kopanisti

Greek Feta Spread-Kopanisti

Feta cheese whips up into a smooth, creamy spread when blended with olive oil in the food processor. The Greeks like to flavor it with garlic, mint and pickled peppers to make a piquant dip for pita bread or pita chips.  You can also serve with radishes, carrot sticks, red pepper or cucumber.
Serves: 4
