Yield: Yields about 1-1/2 cups
Charred bell peppers make a velvety base for the Mediterranean flavors of feta, dill and garlic in this tasty, good-for-you dip. Serve it with whole-grain pita wedges or toasted baguette slices brushed with olive oil and rubbed with garlic.
Peel and mince the garlic clove. With the side of a chef’s knife, mash the garlic and 1/4 tsp. salt together to form a paste.
Put the peppers, feta, breadcrumbs, lemon juice, and olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the garlic paste and dill. Season to taste with salt and serve.

This recipe was delicious when it was first made! My only complaint is that, after a couple of hours, the dill and garlic became overpowering and cancelled out the sweetness of the roasted peppers.
Delicious! Feta not too overpowering, nice favors. A hit at my dinner party tonight!
This dip is very quick and easy to prepare and produces a very flavorful dish. The dill comes out as a very strong flavor so decrease or remove it if you are serving a more conseravtive food-taste crowd.
This dip is wonderful! I made it for a holiday party and ended up making it 3 more times during the season because people kept asking for it. I found that I could use reduced fat feta with no detectable difference in taste. This recipe has become one of my party standbys. The dill really makes it - don't leave it out!
