Beet and feta dip

Beet and feta dip

Here's to colorful Spring recipes ! A minty feta and beet dip to serve with your favorite veggie platters, chips or crackers.

I love dips as appetizers, they're fun, delicious and not very time-consuming. In this one, the beet really sweetens the sharp tasting feta cheese. Mint adds some freshness, love it here.

As usual, since we're eating it raw, it's best to use a good quality olive oil. I love Carapelli olive oil, I use it on a daily basis in pretty much everything.

If you're into cheesy dips, I made a dip recipe with goat cheese and preserved lemon, the recipe is right here :

Goat cheese, preserved lemon & mint dip
I love dips of all sorts! And because I still had some preserved lemons in my fridge, I thought it might taste good with goat cheese and mint in a dip. It was BRILLIANT.
