Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip | A Nutritionist Eats

One of the unfortunate side effects of being a “food blogger” is that I rarely make the same recipes over and over again. Even if there are recipes that I love, I’m on a constant quest to try new foods and recipes, and test recipes of my own before they show up here.

So I’m making a conscious effort to go back through some of these favorite recipes. It’s been way too long since many of them have touched our plates.

Even though this very recipe was one of the first on this site (though I think it’s better written this time!) I don’t remember the last time I made it. Which is ridiculous because I LOVED this dip. It was one of my standard appetizers that I made on a regular basis when I was getting into cooking. And it’s wonderful.

Feta cheese is combined with cream cheese and roasted red peppers. It’s ridiculously simple but so tasty. Aren’t the best things in life?

You can serve it with pita crackers (or any crackers really), in sandwiches or wraps. If you are anything like me, you’ll  want to eat it on everything! I also like to serve it with a few kalamata olives on the side…because I love them and they obviously go great with feta cheese.

Appetizers are, by far, my favorite thing in the world. If I invite you over? We’re having lots of appetizers. (I think I’ve only hosted two actual sit-down dinners). If I offer to bring something over to you? It’s always appetizers. When I eat out, I always choose appetizers over dessert. And often, I order

On my last daily eats post, I asked if you would rather see a juice fast/cleanse or a day from Jillian Michael’s Making the Cut plan. Making the Cut was the clear winner and is a “30-day diet and fitness plan for the strongest, sexiest you!” It is a book I’ve had for quite some
