An homage to the Greek dish Htipiti, this whipped feta dip with roasted red peppers is the perfect balance of tangy and savory. With only five main ingredients, this simple dip is easy to make for any small gathering as an appetizer! Try pairing this with toasted pita, fresh crudités, and marinated olives. —Marissa Mullen

My feta must have been a bit salty so I added some extra chopped peppers and fresh basil. I let it rest in the refrigerator over night and it was so tasty. I tossed it in some fresh cooked pasta with spinach and artichokes, simply devine.

This is delicious! I will definitely play with adding ingredients next time. Anchovies comes to mind for an extra umami jolt.

One of my favorite dips. I usually add garlic and a little pinch of red chile flakes.
