Sun Dried Tomato Basil Whipped Feta

After having a delicious whipped feta dip at a restaurant with Dan and Shawna last weekend, I became obsessed with recreating it.  This version tastes pretty darn close to the original and is super easy to make.  I have a feeling it will be made several more times as football season approaches.  Here's how Mama makes it:

Sun Dried Tomato Basil Whipped Feta

- 8 oz. low fat cream cheese, softened
- 6 oz. crumbled feta (tomato basil or regular)
- 1/3 to 1/2 c. Packed fresh basil leaves
- 1/4 c. Sun dried tomatoes (I used a sundried tomato pesto I had on hand)
- 1 T. Olive oil


1.  In a food processor, process feta until fine crumbs.  

2.  Add basil leaves and tomatoes and process until finely chopped.  Add olive oil as needed to allow ingredients to mix.

3.  Add cream cheese and process until smooth.  Refrigerate for an hour or overnight.  Serve as a dip with veggies, pitas, chips, or crackers, or as a spread on sandwiches and wraps.  It doesn't take much to add BIG flavor!

We used it to make these yummy wraps with chicken and spinach.
