This Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta is something that’s perfect to make when it’s hot weather and you have mint in the garden.

And if you don’t feel like buying mint during the winter, just leave it out and this will still be delicious!

And if you serve low-carb vegetables to scoop up the dip like I did, this is perfect for a snack, but also flavorful enough to serve for a party. And trust me, no one will even think about this being low in carbs!

  2. Great minds…you know what they say 🙂 Today is my second day on the SB Phase 1, and I bought the Supercharged Super Quick Cookbook yesterday, planning to make this recipe today!! Thanks for the post and your informative website, don't think I would have started this new lifestyle without your site!

    Joanne, it was a perfect lunch for me!

  5. Love that kabob in yor header and this recipe. I think roasted pepper anything will get my attention. Sending this to my good friend who is always looking for healthy snacks. It's lunch to me 🙂

  6. Jeanette, I think I've also had that Greek dip with red peppers. Maybe this recipe was based on that one? I would love it on grilled fish too!

  7. Kalyn, this roasted red pepper dip looks so nice and creamy, even though it is low in fat! This reminds me of a dip I just had at a Greek restaurant we visited this past weekend. I bet this would be good on top of broiled or grilled fish.

  8. Sharan, welcome and it was fun checking out your blog.

    CJ, grilled shrimp would be great with this. (So many good ideas coming in comments today!)

    Chris, I know what you mean about that stop button issue.

    Donna, me too!

    Lydia, I'm thinking this could only be even more awesome with freshly roasted red peppers.

  9. I just made a huge batch of roasted peppers on the grill — perfect timing! I'll set the red ones aside to make this dip.

  10. You had me at Roasted Red Peppers. One of my favorite foods ever.

    Donna

  16. Kelley, I loved it. And loved the color too.

    Cooking Creation, thanks!

    Champa, I like the idea of using ricotta. It will probably need a bit more salt and I might add more lemon juice (unless you want a milder dip.) Let us know how it turns out.

    Maris, thanks so much. My best camera is still in the shop, so I was happy I could still get okay photos with my old Rebel.

  17. Not only does this sound delicious, but I love the photo! So pretty!

  18. I am making it. I probably will use ricotta instead of feta since that is what I have on hand. Cool recipe.
