This is my own take on a Greek Feta spread known as Kopanisti. I love the combination and bite from the cheeses and the zing from the peppers and garlic. Add the crushed red pepper if you like it extra spicy! Enjoy!

This is a super easy appetizer to prepare the next time you're hosting company. Pepperoncinis are a milder pepper and add a slight bite to the dip, but do not make it spicy. Feta and gorgonzola cheese complement each other wonderfully and add to the punch of flavor. This dip is very rich, thick, and creamy. Fantastic on a slice of toasted bread.
