Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Pesto Cheese Spread

Dipping chips. Dipping bread. Dipping veggies. Dipping anything! I have to admit it, I love dips and spreads. I came across this cheese spread when I was in desperate need of something quick and yummy for tonight. With only 4 ingredients and a 5 minute prep time…I was sold! This tangy, zippy-to-make dip will delight your taste buds and your pocket book. Try pairing it with warmed pita bread or wheat crackers (or for a healthy snack some fresh vegetables).

Summary: A Greek dip perfect for pairing with, veggies, pita bread, crackers and salad!

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sun-dried tomato and basil pesto

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, blend feta cheese, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, and sun-dried tomato pesto.
  2. Blend until completely mixed and smooth (about 3-4 minutes).

The Fresh Fridge Tip: This spread gets stiff in the cool fridge, so leave it at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving if you let it cool overnight.
