Ingredients
Blistered Tomatoes
  • 1 cup small cherry tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil, plus more to drizzle
Greek Salad
  • ½ cup green pepper, diced
  • ½ cup cucumber, diced
  • Pitted dry cured black olives
  • 1 tsp. vinegar
  • salt and pepper
Whipped Feta
  • 8 oz. feta, crumbled
  • 4 oz. light cream cheese, cubed
  • 2-3 oz. light cream
  • Fresh or crisped pita bread
  • Parsley to garnish
Instructions
  1. Note: The recipe makes double the whipped feta that is needed for the salad. I made another fresh batch of salad to enjoy it with the next day. You can just easily double the salad ingredients if you would like to serve this all at once.
  2. Place the olive oil and garlic in a skillet and heat up to medium high. Add the tomatoes and let sit without stirring for 1-2 min. Once slightly blistered remove from heat to cool and shake pan.
  3. Place the feta and cream cheese in a food processor and whip until as smooth as you can get it. Add cream until you reach the spreadable consistency that you like. Set aside.
  4. Toss the salad ingredients in a bowl and once tomatoes are cooled add them with the oil and garlic. Serve whipped feta and salad together with a fresh drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley if desired.
