Whipped Feta Salad

Whipped feta salad 1 Storybook Woods

    I eat a LOT of salads, at lest one a day. So I am always looking for ways to bling it up. I made David this Whipped Feta Salad for Father's day and it was a big hit. Now I am making whipped feta all the time. It is easy to make, keeps a good week in a air tight container and great with veggies. Check it out!

Whipped Feta Salad

Greens tossed in a vinaigrette

cherry tomatoes, avocado and pistachio nuts to garnish

 

Simply spread some whipped feta on your plate, dress your greens and add garnishes. Very simple to make.  

 

Whipped Feta

1 cup (8oz) feta cheese at room temperature
1/3 cup (3oz) whipped cream cheese, at room temperature, see notes

 

In a food processor crumble feta into tiny piece. Add cream cheese. Run processor until smooth and fluffy. Takes about 3-4 minutes. Store in a covered container and refrigerate until ready to serve. Keeps about a week refrigerated.

 

Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/2 cup oil, I like a good olive oil

3 TBL Balsamic Vinaigrette 

1 TBL honey (optional)

1 garlic clove, finely minced

salt and pepper to taste

 

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Taste and adjust to your liking

 

Notes

  1. Instead of cream cheese you can also use, sour cream or mascrapone.
  2. My Strawberry Infused Balsamic is wonderful in this salad!
  3. Great as a crudites with raw veggies.
