Kopanisti - Greek Feta Spread

The other day I showed you a great Greek recipe for Chicken Souvlaki.

A wonderful dish to go with this is Williams-Sonoma's version of Kopanisti.  This is a Greek Feta Spread.  Kopanisti is really a type of cheese however, it also means beaten.  And this dish is just that....beaten.  You add a few ingredients to a food processor and "beat it"!

This version uses pepperoncinis as the wow factor.  Many versions use roasted red peppers, however the use of the pepperoncini gives this dip a definite kick!  Not for the person that likes things mellow, but if you can take a little heat, then this will put some zip in your step!

Easy to make, and goes perfect served with the chicken, along side, or used as a spread with pita.  Try topping the chicken with it too!  It's perfect anyway to try it.

Hope you enjoy this dish!  More to come later in the week.
