Have you tried the baked feta pasta that took the internet by storm earlier this year? That simple recipe inspired this delicious summer dip, which features some of my very favorite flavors–;creamy feta, tangy cherry tomatoes, olives and plenty of fresh basil.
Baking these ingredients together near the heat source yields maximal flavor. The feta softens and turns golden, the cherry tomatoes burst and naturally sweeten, and the olives become even more intensely olive-y. Swirled together and finished with a generous sprinkle of basil, the combination is sublime.
This dish also bears a resemblance to a classic Greek dish called feta fournou, or baked feta. That dish typically features feta with bell pepper, tomato and oregano.
The flavors in today’s dip are also delicious raw, as you’ve seen in my Mediterranean Tomato & Feta Dip–;make that one if you don’t want to turn on the oven! Either one will be a perfect light meal or summer evening appetizer.
