Baked Mediterranean Feta Dip

Today I’m going to share a new recipe inspired by a new healthy dish I recently whipped up. The chicken dish is baked with a Mediterranean salsa spooned over the top. This salsa is so good I find myself sneaking an extra spoonful or two with crackers or chips before I bake the rest.

 

Then I got to thinking…with the football season really heating up, how could I turn this goodness into a shareable appetizer? I’ll tell you how: Baked Mediterranean Feta DipBaked Feta with Mediterranean Salsa Recipe | Five Marigolds #ad

 This appetizer has the flavors of fresh tomatoes, red onion, olives, garlic and oregano – and of course, Feta cheese.Baked Feta with Mediterranean Salsa Recipe | Five Marigolds #ad

This dish is unique because I used a brick of Feta for the texture and the consistency when baked. (If you can’t find a brick of it, you can substitute crumbled, and shorten the bake time.)Baked Feta with Mediterranean Salsa Recipe | Five Marigolds #ad
The result is a so fresh and flavorful.

Serve with pita chips, toasted bread or crackers. It’s sure to be a hit at the next game day watch party.

In the unlikely scenario that there are leftovers, you can pop it back in the oven to soften the Feta back up. Or, spoon it over grilled chicken for a light and clean dinner.Baked Feta with Mediterranean Salsa Recipe | Five Marigolds #ad
