Mediterranean Dip

My latest food obsession with sun-dried tomatoes has been taken to another level. I have a new crack dip using sun-dried tomatoes and it’s ohmygawdshutthefrontdoorawesome. For reals. Crack dip was the coined nickname of “buffalo chicken dip” from other food bloggers/foodies and it’s made mainly during football season – it’s one of the most craved dips to make. This Mediterranean dip is buffalo dip’s new competition, crack dip’s sister.

This Mediterranean dip was inspired by a three-layer dip that I came across while tasting samples at my favorite Farmers Market, Orange Home Grown. The three layer dip was offered to me to taste with their signature pita chips and it blew my mind. It’s a simple dip of a three layers, feta cheese, pesto and sun-dried tomatoes. Simple yet amazing.

I bought a container and a couple other things and shamefully… we went through the small 6 ounce container in a day. There was no way my impatient self would wait another week to get my hands on another one. Naturally, I made my own version to satisfy my new crack dip need. It’s simple to prepare, and best shared with friends, family, and loved ones with a big bag of pita chips.

Disclosure: Crack dip’s sister is addicting.

Review: Only if we had taste vision through the computers, would you be able to quickly enjoy this wonderful dip. Make some today – it’s cheesy, tangy and nom-alicious! (Do you like my crackle nail polish? It’s another thing I’m addicted to, it’s so much fun!)
