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.

How to Make Three Cheese Pepperoncini Spread

Step-by-Step

  1. Make sure cream cheese is softened.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor.
  3. Pulse to combine. It's better to have this a little chunky instead of a smooth puree.
  4. This can be eaten immediately but it will be better if allowed to sit for a while or refrigerated overnight. Serve with pita crisps, crackers or any sturdy bread or toast.
