From chef Jon Ashton of Celebration, Florida - a friend I met in cooking class. This "htipiti" dip is one of a medley of Mediterranean dips served at Disney World. It's fantastic with Afelia (Pork in Coriander & Wine) - serve with pork cubes and toothpicks.
- 1 (6 ounce) package fat free feta cheese or 1 (6 ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled
- 1⁄3 cup plain nonfat yogurt or 1⁄3 cup plain yogurt
- 1⁄3 cup nonfat sour cream or 1⁄3 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- fresh herb, minced (ie. mint, dill, parsley and or or basil, can also use flavored feta cheese) (optional)
- In a blender or a food processor, puree all ingredients until smooth; serve as a spread or dip with warm pita bread or sesame crispbread.
Really great dip! Nice and garlic-y. I doubled the sour cream after pureeing once, since it was quite thick. I used dill and basil and all the flavors worked super together.
I absolutely loved this recipe! I used regular crumbled feta (the full fat kind), fat free plain Greek yogurt, and low fat sour cream. 1 tsp of minced garlic, and 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt and just a dash of pepper. Put in about 1/2 tsp of dill weed. Just loved it with celery and pretzels. I will be making this for the next family get together. Thanks FLKeysJen for this easy dip.
Guests rated this one beteen 2 and 3 stars... but that said I did use the mint option in this with is and it produced more of a "sweet" flavour and I'm fairly certain that it would have been a far far better result with basil or dill, or any stong savoury herb such as oregano or thyme. It was easy to make, but reaction to it was mediocre at best. Please see my Rating System: 3 stars because when the vote is split I always err on the upper side to account for presonal preferences. I think that this is definiately NOT a success (for us at least) with mint, I would like to give it a second chance with basil however and see how it fares. It's good to have tried something new. Thanks!
