Ingredients

  • 170g crumbled feta
  • 60 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 large cucumbers, sliced
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

Directions

  1. First, make the whipped feta. Place the feta and cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse until the cheeses are mixed. Add the lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and turn on the food processor. With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream through the tube. Turn off the food processor.

  2. Place a dollop of whipped feta in the centre of each cucumber slice. Top with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil. Serve.
