  • 7 ounces - feta cheese (about 1 cup crumbled)
  • 1 tablespoons - grated lemon zest, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoons - to 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cloves - garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons - extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 pinchs - red pepper flakes
  • - crudites, chips, toasts or pita crisps, for serving
  • Directions:

    Place the feta, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, garlic and olive oil in a blender and whir until combined but still slightly chunky. It’s dense, so you may need to stir it with a fork once or twice. Taste, and if it’s too salty add more lemon juice.

    Spoon into a serving bowl, drizzle with a little oil and sprinkle with a pinch of pepper flakes and some lemon zest.

    Serve with crudités, chips, toasts or pita crisps.
