Greek Yogurt Feta Dip


As a teenager I would go to this small Middle Eastern quick service restaurant that was run by a very friendly Jordanian. Everything was always so flavorful, the rice, shwarma, pita in particular but his sauces were everything! The Greek Fries were my favorite because he poured a tangy and salty yogurt sauce over them. My plate was always licked clean. Needless to say I was devastated when he sold the place because what walked away with him were all his recipes. It wasn’t until I became a cook that I said to myself, “I can make that sauce!”  And so that’s exactly what I did. Get ready to fall in love with this dip and if you’re like me- you’ll want to pour it over everything!
