Htipiti - Greek Feta Dip

So, you've just got back from a lovely holiday in Greece and now feel the need to make that truly delicious (and very moreish) Feta cheese dip you had there?

Htipiti - Greek Feta Dip

Well, it's seriously easy to make and there's nothing fancy involved.

A good few years ago I wanted to know how to make it and of course, I found Peter's recipe over at Kalofagas and I've made it regularly ever since - but a word of warning, it is addictive!

So all you need to do is put equal amounts of proper Greek Feta cheese and Ricotta into a bowl and mash along with a bit of olive oil with a fork till smooth.

100g of each makes a reasonable amount of dip for 2 to 4 people.

Pierce a banana pepper or chilli pepper (so it doesn't explode) and then roast the pepper or peppers depending on how much dip you want to make, over a flame until they are charred.

Pop them into a plastic bag to cool. The skins can then be removed easily along with the seeds.

Add the chopped pepper to the cheese mixture until you have the heat required - you can make it as hot as you like or not, it's up to you.

Finally, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
