GREECE - Roasted Pepper & Feta Spread
Description

Greece may have grabbed your attention with the recent expulsion of a certain triple jumper and her social media comments, but what really strikes us is how good their traditional htipiti spreads are. We love this recipe by chef Michael Psilakis because it’s easy to make and has a salty kick from the feta.
