Ingredients
  

For the blistered cherry tomatoes

For the whipped feta

  • 1 1/2 cups feta cheese
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • zest of one lemon

For the hot honey

Instructions
 

  • To make the blistered tomatoes, add 1 tbsp olive oil to a frying pan over medium heat. Once warm, add the tomatoes and let sit undisturbed for about 5 minutes – if the pan is getting too hot, turn to medium-low heat.
  • Add the salt, pepper and minced garlic to the tomatoes, stir a few times to combine and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove the tomatoes from the heat and put the tomatoes into a bowl to fully cool.
  • Once the tomatoes are cooled, make the whipped feta by combining the feta cheese, lemon juice, olive oil and lemon zest in a food processor. Pulse until combined and creamy.
  • To make the hot honey, stir together the liquid honey, hot sauce and a pinch of chili flakes.
  • To assemble the dip, spread the whipped feta on a plate or in a low bowl. Use a slotted spoon or fork to transfer the cooled tomatoes onto the feta. Drizzle with hot honey and sprinkle of fresh thyme. Serve with pitas and enjoy!
