Roasted Red Pepper Feta Dip

This is by far my favourite dip and the easiest to make!

In a food processor or blender mix the following;
  • 1 1/2 cup feta cheese, drained and cubed
  • 1 large roasted red pepper, skinned and chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 hot pepper of your choice chopped. I used a banana pepper from our garden. Jalapeno works nicely too.
  • 1-2 garlic cloves or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup or more of fresh lemon juice
  • *Optional* A squirt of hot sriracha chili sauce. It gives it a little "Je ne sais quoi".

Serve cold with fresh veggies or crispy salty pita chips :-)
