Artichoke feta dip is a savory, creamy hot appetizer perfect for any party or celebration. Serve with crackers, crusty bread, or mix in mini phyllo cups!
I wouldn’t call this artichoke feta dip kid-friendly. In fact, it wouldn’t qualify as a husband-friendly dip in my house. But you know what? It’s something I almost always make when I get together with girlfriends. Mainly because a. I know most women I hang with have an affinity for feta cheese like I do and b. most get-togethers with my lady-friends as of late have been without children and b. when women hangout, there’s always snacks, treats, or apps to pass. Women certainly know what goes well with girl-time: that’s good food, wine, and conversation. Someday my toddlers will give me that kind of satisfaction too… in about 20+ years I’m guessing!
Back to the girl-time: I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of a monthly mom’s dinner group organized by one of my good friends in our neighborhood. For the past few months, we’ve met at a local restaurant once a month and had time to mingle and eat, kid-free!!!!! This month’s dinner was set at a local blow dry bar [yes, there are beauty bars meant specifically for a nice blow out]. So not only did we all bring an appetizer, dessert, or drink to pass, we had someone blow-dry our hair! I didn’t want to leave….
When I thought about what dish I was going to bring to our blow-dry celebration, I knew it was going to be this artichoke feta dip. Unlike a traditional creamy dip, I opted to make half of the creamy goodness Greek yogurt and the other half well, the good creamy goodness: mayonnaise. Mixed together with two other cheeses and baked with artichokes, this dip screams girlfriends in my opinion! Oh and easy cleanup… which is something all women can appreciate!
