rosso pesto dip


It seems my posting of summer dips has evolved into a series.  Here's another goody that's delicious and super-fast to toss together.  Mash together 6 ounces of crumbled Feta, 1 cup of Greek yogurt or sour cream, and 1/2 cup of rosso (red) pesto (if you can't find it, chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes will do the trick). Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.  Serve with pretzel or pita chips or veggies.  (I leave out the salt, if I'm serving it with the pretzel chips.)  This stuff is amazing.

  1. I shall not comment on the photo, but the dip itself sounds delicious. It has to, it contains all delicious things!

  16. Yumminess! Got to try it. I have been making so much pesto from all the basil growing in the garden. And the pesto never lasts long in our home. This one will be a nice change once the basil is gone.
