Rosemary, Lemon & Feta Spread
Feta cheese is often relegated to a crumble on top of a finished product, but that robust tangy flavor is great used in other ways too. Here is a tasty spread you can serve with vegetables, crackers, toasted baguette slices, pretzels, etc. that makes a wonderful appetizer for holiday entertaining and the rosemary is a great seasonal herb.
Rosemary, Lemon, & Feta Spread
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped (only use 1/2 Tbls. if using dry)
1 tsp. fresh or dried lemon thyme (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a medium mixing bowl mix together cream cheese, feta, rosemary, lemon thyme, lemon juice, and garlic until well combined (or place in a food processor and process several times until just combined). Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
