Roasted Red Pepper Feta Dip

This roasted red pepper feta dip is cheesy, creamy and delicious.

Yesterday when I opened the almost bare fridge for lunch there was one half of a pathetic looking, week old chicken breast staring back at me, the only easy lunch option available. I kind of sighed, looked at it, threw it on the counter and continued searching for something to make week old honey-soy chicken sound appetizing. The options were cucumbers, red peppers, feta and yogurt. The cucumbers lost.

Of course I picked the 20 minute span of the afternoon that it decided to rain to roast peppers on the grill and then proceeded to burn my fingers off from impatience peeling them too soon.

Hungry stomach > common sense.

A simple something to “dress up the chicken” somehow turned into 3 cups of dip that I ended up shoveling into my mouth by the spoonful after drenching the chicken in it. Not because I have no self control (although that could sometimes be argued) but because we had no chips, pretzels or even decent vegetables to use as dippers.

1. It’s deliciously creamy, cheesy and salty without being overkill. Both of which I attribute to this yogurt and feta being amazing (please start showing up in stores by me! Although, I could be convinced of a trip to Greece to bring some back.)

2. I need to go food shopping for dippers asap.

So I'm convinced that I'm singlehandedly keeping Trader Joe's afloat--I buy so much Greek yogurt to make delicious stuff like this, they're going to name the dairy section after me soon. And maybe the cookie butter section. Anyway, found this via photograzing and loving it--thanks for sharing!
