Greece: Kopanisti...A Whipped Feta Spread

* jcsmama's version of a traditional greek recipe

This versatile dip/sauce/spread is great with toasted pita wedges or veggies, and also delicious served with grilled meats and chicken.

Servings:  makes 1 & 1/2 cups
Ready in: about 5 min.

1 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup plain yougurt, preferably greek
zest of a whole lemon
juice of 1/2 a lemon
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp finely chopped sun-dried tomato

-in a food processor bowl add all ingredients and puree until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
-transfer to a serving bowl, drizzle with a bit of olive oil
and serve

*in Greece they also make a spicy version of this by adding either more pepper or a bit of a spicy hot pepper...experiment to come up with your own version
