Ingredients

  • 6 ounces feta (I buy a block) room temperature
  • 2 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil + extra for drizzling
  • Juice + zest from 1/2 lemon
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Take cheeses out of the fridge about an hour prior to making this.
  • Chop the herbs.
  • Add the feta and cream cheese to the food processor (crumble the feta into smaller pieces).
  • Pulse the cheeses until they're combined.
  • Add the herbs, garlic, oil, lemon juice & zest, and salt & pepper to the food processor and blend until everything is well combined.
  • Serve immediately or chill for an hour or two before serving. Delicious when served with a generous drizzle of olive oil on top.
