Five Ingredients Friday (Ktipiti- feta spread)

It's Friday again and, even though I'm in Las Vegas, I still wanted to make sure to publish my regularly scheduled Five Ingredients Friday post.

Normally, I like to share tried and true recipes with all of you, but this is not one of them. In fact, I found this recipe in the Southwest Airlines magazine as I was flying to Vegas just this morning. It looks quick and easy and I'm going to try it for our next dinner party. I'll let you know how it turns out when I do. If you make it before me, please let me know how you liked it!

So, my Five Ingredients Friday recipe for this week is...


  1. 1 cup feta
  2. 1/3 cup cream
  3. 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  4. 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, divided
  5. extra-virgin olive oil, 1 Tbsp. or to taste

  1. Blend feta, cream, vinegar, and 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Spoon in a bowl or onto a platter and drizzle olive oil on top.
  3. Top with an additional 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes.
  4. Serve with sliced tomato and pita, French bread, or crackers.

Optional: garnish spread with parsley before serving.

I look forward to seeing your Five Ingredients Friday recipe! Don't forget to link your blog on this post so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Thanks so much for your participation! Please, spread the word!

I think after we get moved into our new home in Georgia, I'll have to come back and get some of these recipes so that I can have some easy things to make. Ta for now dahling!

Well I can see it's going to take me a little while to run around and grab all the recipes appearing here today!

I simply did not have time to check past 5IF's to see if this recipe appeared before. I do seem to have a talent for posting a previously entered recipe. :-)

Crossing my fingers here.

I came here via Chelsea Morning - what an incredibly beautiful blog!! Of course you must live in Ireland although I coulnd't find that on your profile. My 18yr old son is heading to Belfast NI to do an apprenticeship at Robin Mark's church so I am naturally inerested in Ireland - plus my mother's family came from there. And I love to cook and bake so I am enjoying your wonderful recipes - I'll definitely be back.
