I’m sure you all know how much I love feta by now. Here is but another delectable recipe for feta in my arsenal. I have adapted this recipe only slightly from a wonderful cookbook called Kitchen classics Gourmet Vegetarian by Jane Price. It’s such a simple easy recipe that you can make ahead of time or last minute. It only takes maybe 5 minutes to prepare and very little materials. Great for last minute guests or even just you and your family. I usually make this for a party and IF there are left overs it spreads well on toast and sandwiches.

Combine the cream cheese, feta, basil and olive oil in a bowl until smooth. Fold in the olives and spoon into a serving bowl. Smooth the top with the back of the spoon and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Garnish with cracked pepper and basil leaves or olives. Serve with warm bruschetta or pita chips.
