The food processor does all the serious work of turning feta, cream, roasted garlic and black pepper into a luscious Whipped Feta Dip. Grill or broil some fresh cherry tomatoes from Dillner Family Farms, toast some bread, and pour glasses of wine for the guests. You’ll love this carefree appetizer.
