Whipped Feta Dip with Spiced Pita Chips

 

Feta cheese is whipped up with greek yogurt, lemon and chives for a bright, creamy dip that takes almost no time at all to make. I also added some additional heat and texture in the form of pine nuts toasted in a quick homemade chile oil. And finally, no dip would be complete without something fantastic to dip it in. In this case, the only real option I saw was pita chips. In particular, homemade pita chips spiced with smoked paprika and za’atar. All I can say is, this is one tasty dip.

8 ounces block feta cheese, crumbled

1/2 cup greek yogurt

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
