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).

Recipe: Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Pesto Cheese Spread

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


  • 1/3 Cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sun-dried tomato and basil pesto


  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).
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate overnight.
  4. Serve with: veggies (I used carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli) or crackers. I think this would also be good to try with some warmed pita bread.

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.
