Croatian Feta & Olive Oil Dip

As you know, I recently spent a wonderful week in Croatia, and loved so many things about it. The country has the bluest water I’ve ever seen, the nicest people, and the most delicious olive oil!

While we were there, we stopped along one of the roads at a cute produce stand. The man there told us that his family owned the nearby olive groves, and that his olive oil was fresh from their home. So of course I bought a bottle. In fact, if I had had more Kuna I would have bought 20 bottles!

I joked around with my brother that I wasn’t sure if it would actually be olive oil, or just water, when I opened it! Luckily, upon opening the bottle back in New York, I was pleased to discover that it was in fact olive oil, and that it was absolutely delicious!

So in the spirit of reminiscing about an amazing Croatia trip, and putting this tasty olive oil to good use, I decided to make Croatian Feta & Olive Oil Dip.

To make, you’ll need:

  • Delicious olive oil from a side-of-the-road Croatian produce stand (or, in a pinch, olive oil from your grocery store)
  • Feta cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Green onions
  • Pita bread
  • Greek seasoning

The amount of each of the ingredients depends on whether you’re serving this at a party, or making dinner for yourself. If you are using fresh Croatian olive oil, I would advise not sharing!

Finally, take a spoon and stir the ingredients together, ensuring that everything is coated with olive oil.

Serve in a bowl with big chunks of pita bread.

I recommend using spoons to scoop the dip onto the bread. It makes it a little less messy. Although, be warned, it still may get messy, so get ready to lick the olive oil off your fingers!
