There is something you can do to get through winter gracefully. You can plan gatherings. You can bring people together, sip wine, nibble and chat. This Feta Walnut Dip will get the party started.
Feta Walnut Dip
- 1 c chopped walnuts
- a handful of fresh parsley
- 1 c crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 c water or milk – or a little less
- 1 small clove garlic
- a little olive oil (optional)
- a few fresh sprigs or a pinch of dried oregano (optional)
Quickly blend the walnuts, garlic and parsley in a blender or food processor. Add the feta and half the water. Blend until smooth. Add more water if needed to get desired consistency. Refrigerate covered. Garnish with a little drizzle of olive oil and oregano. Use as a raw vegetable dip or a spread on bread or crackers. Stuff Feta Walnut Dip into celery or hollowed out cucumbers. Makes about 1¾ cups. Serves 6.
