Ingredients

  • 7 oz feta cheese (200 g)
  • 4 tbsp pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened yogurt (Greek)
  • cup olive oil (40 ml)
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 6 leaves fresh mint
  • chili powder
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Crumble the feta cheese on a large plate and drizzle with a little olive oil and the dried thyme. Season with a little chili powder. The feta is already quite salty so we will only add extra salt to taste right at the end once the dip is ready.
