Baked Feta & Olive Dip

It’s been a while since baked feta pasta took over our Tik Tok feeds and palate, becoming one of the most popular lockdown recipes (and with good reason!). Although viral recipes rarely make a comeback in our kitchens beyond the time they are trending, we found ourselves tinkering with baked feta in different forms over time. After all , there are few things as inviting as the melted creaminess of this salty cheese especially when paired with the right accoutrements! Our efforts bore fruit with this beauty of a baked feta and olive dip of sorts, which came together recently as a last minute appetiser for unexpected guests.

As far as recipes go, this one is definitely a fridge-raid dish tossed together with whichever ingredients and seasonings we had easily at hand. The melty feta is complimented beautifully by the rich flavours of roasted olives and charred cherry tomatoes. Encourage your guests to gently mix it together before smearing generously across crusty slices of bread or salty crackers.
