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