How do you feel about hot weather? I’m a fan of summer, and for weeks I’ve been complaining about the rainy spring we’ve been having in Utah. But the weather changed while I was in Austin for the IACP Conference and now it’s so hot in Salt Lake that I turned my air conditioner on today!

Hot weather makes me think about nibbling instead of eating big meals, and this delicious Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta and Mint is perfect for a snack, but also flavorful enough to serve for a party.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta and Mint

This recipe starts with a jar of roasted red peppers, drained very well and then patted dry with paper towels. I chopped the mint while the peppers were draining. Puree and red peppers and the minced garlic in a food processor. Add the cream cheese, feta, fat-free Greek Yogurt, chopped mint, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and process until the the mixture is well-blended.

I ate some of the dip with celery and snow peas, for a light summer lunch. This would also be delicious as a sauce for grilled chicken, fish, or vegetables.

  1. Barbara, thanks. I really liked the feta in this!

  2. I have had red pepper dip with hummus as a base. I like the sound of this with cheese and yoghurt.

  3. TW, me too, and I think this would be even better with freshly-roasted peppers if you get some from the farm!

  4. I like the firey hot color for summer combined with cool feta and mint.

  5. So glad you liked it, and I can definitely imagine a spicier version of this being great!

  9. Dara, looking forward to seeing you too. The mint was so good in this.

    Susan, there are so many things I love that have mint, like Fattoush, Tabbouley, and now this dip! Just planted 4 more mint plants for a total of 8 in my new divided herb bed.
