Whipped feta with mint, fennel & honey
Delicious as a dip with flat breads and vegetable crudités or spread on toast topped with slices of fresh tomato and cucumber. I love the contrast of sweet honey with the salty, sharp feta, lemon zest and fresh herbs. Simple, zingy summer flavours.
Fresh mint and fennel are in abundance in the garden at the moment and starting to flower too, which the bees are very happy about.
The whipped feta and yogurt also makes a great base for adding your own favourite herbs and spices too.
2 tbsp Greek yogurt/creme fraiche
1 tbsp chopped fresh fennel herb/leaf (or dill as an alternative)
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
2 tsp honey
1/2 lemon zest
black pepper to taste
add the feta, yogurt/creme fraiche and honey to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric whisk/spoon until smooth. Stir in the lemon zest, chopped herbs and black pepper to taste.
