- In a small sauté pan over medium heat, add oil, shallots, garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for five minutes stirring often. Remove from heat early if they start to brown too much. Set aside to cool.
- In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, feta, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill and the cooled ingredients from the pan.
- Chill and serve with vegetable sticks and/or dipping chips.
Some feta cheeses are made from goat’s and sheep’s milk and the taste is quite sharp and tangy. We recommend cow’s milk feta for this recipe. You’ll still enjoy a briny flavor but it is more mild than other feta cheese options.
