Ranch Feta

I came across the idea for this spread from a cookbook dedicated to all things Ranch.

Important Note: I paid nowhere near the ridiculous price listed in the link. I mean, I, like most of us do like my ranch dressing, but not that much.

Anyway, in the book, they combine a home made ranch dressing with freshly crumbled Feta cheese, which is all well and good, but I already had my own fave bottled ranch dressing in the fridge, so…

•10-1/2 oz Feta in brine, well drained
•3/8 cup ranch dressing
•1 tsp lemon juice
•1 tsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste
•Chopped fresh parsley

Note: at first, I thought to put this together using my trusty immersion blender.

Not a good idea at all. My mini food processor, however, worked a treat!

Combine the Feta and the ranch dressing until well and truly mixed in a mini-food processor fitted with the metal blade, then give it a taste.


I thought it was good, but could use a little boost, so I added the lemon juice and the hot sauce, then pulsed the processor again to blend well.

Very nice.

I transferred to a small jar, stirred in some freshly chopped parsley, then stashed in the fridge for a few hours or (always more better) overnight, to allow the flavors to really mesh.

Remove from the fridge about 30 minutes before serving with crackers or bread slices.
