Add cream cheese to the feta, then whip in fresh dill and mint for one variation. Using fresh basil and dried tomatoes in oil makes a vibrant garnish for another variation. Make a plate of both and serve with a variety of dippers, such as baby cucumbers, endive leaves, Romanesco, baby rainbow carrots, pickled green beans, and radishes. Ingredients 1 fruit (2-3/8" dia) lemon 1 clove garlic clove 1 1/2 cups feta cheese 2 ounces cream cheese, softened 1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped 3 to 5 cup vegetables, for dipping Directions Remove 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 1 Tbsp. juice from lemon. Place garlic in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add lemon zest and juice, feta, and cream cheese; process until smooth. Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil; process until light and fluffy.
