By: Eleni Saltas
Elevate your appetizer game with this simple dip that comes together in minutes with just a few presses of the food processor or blender. Feta and cream cheese combine for a perfect creamy texture, and is brightened with lemon and honey. Enjoy with pita chips, vegetables, or by the spoonful. My brother suggests spreading the dip on a crostini or your favorite cracker, and then topping with a blackberry or two for an extra sweet bite.
