Whipped Feta Dip

Whipping feta cheese in the food processor with plain yogurt transforms it into a light and creamy base for this silky dip. The savory, saltiness of the feta is balanced with a sweet drizzle of honey and the roasted red peppers give this white canvas a pop of color. This is a deliciously light dip, perfect with crunchy summer veggies or as a sauce for grilled chicken or burgers.
