Spicy Whipped Feta - Yogurt Dip
This is one of the most versatile dips in the Greek kitchen. Serve it as it is, with pita chips or crunchy raw vegetables, toss it into hot pasta with a little extra olive oil, stuff it into peppers, tomatoes, or squid before roasting or grilling, or just let your imagination run with it!

In a medium sized bowl or in the bowl of a food processor with whisk attachment, mash the feta with a fork or whip and add the yogurt. Mix well.
